Internet

In June 2002, CLGW launched it's Internet Service to Kennett residents and businesses in order to meet a need in the community. In 2010 the Board of Public works decided to launch fiber to the home.

Cities and towns across the US are viewing access to advanced telecommunications as pivotal to prosperity. Cities with high speed Internet can attract new employers and give existing businesses a reason to stay. CLGW offers fiber optic internet service to businesses and residential customers throughout the city. Features include unlimited access, a personal webpage, and e-mails with free virus and spam filtering.

The Internet personnel are responsible for operation and maintenance of the systems, on site installation of fiber to the home, wireless service, and providing local technical support.

Internet is another example of how the local ownership of the utility company provides lower cost rates, saving consumers money and at the same times providing jobs here in Kennett. The addition of the Internet was a step toward providing additional skilled job opportunities here in Kennett.

WHY

CLGW brought high speed internet to the area in 2003. Seeing a need in the area for a high speed broadband internet connection, the Kennett Board of Public Works decided to enter into the internet business to provide our customers with a new type of utility. Since that time CLGW has continued to expand its network to keep up with growth adding additional capacity before it was needed. In order to keep up with future expansion CLGW has completed a redundant fiber optic ring around the city.

Fiber to the Home

CLGW's Information Technology department is making fiber internet service available to the home – your home! Fiber Optics is a technology that uses glass threads to transmit data. A fiber optic cable consists of a bundle of glass threads, each of which are capable of transmitting messages into light waves.

Fiber has the following advantages over existing copper lines.

  • Higher Speed – Fiber optic networks operate at extremely high speeds.
  • Greater bandwidth – Fiber has a large carrying capacity for faster data transmission.
  • Distance – Fiber can carry a strong signal over a wide distance.
  • Reliability – Fiber is less susceptible to interference such as weather and foliage.
  • Durability – Fiber is less susceptible to degradation and breakage.

How can a fiber network benefit your family? Fiber optics makes streaming videos and online gaming fast, much faster than through a wireless service or any other method of delivery. A fiber network can generate new ways to work such as telecommuting from home, video conferencing from location to location, and working an internet based business from home. The fiber optic backbone also has advantages for CLGW. It is being used to monitor and control various operations carried out at remote locations for which CLGW is responsible. Future uses such as remote meter reading are also being planned with the fiber to the home system.

If fiber is now available in your neighborhood and you want to jump on the internet at the "speed of light", please contact our office at 888-5366 or 888-9088 and speak to a local customer service representative.
