Comporium and York Electric Cooperative (YEC) are working together in a three-year project to deliver high speed internet to 5,000 unserved YEC members.  The project offers internet speeds up to 1Gbps where DSL or satellite service were once the only choice. This project is evidence of both companies’ continued commitment to investing in the community and improving the lives of its residents.

Comporium, a communications company providing broadband, TV, voice, wireless, smart home systems and advertising services throughout the Carolinas, will build a fiber optic network in western York and parts of Cherokee counties in South Carolina.  

“The partnership with YEC has proven to be as successful as we expected,” said Matthew Dosch, Comporium’s Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. “Working together, we have been able to provide a high-quality broadband solution to rural YEC members and we’ve been able to do it quickly. Over 700 customers have already had their service connected and we’re connecting more each day.” 

Within just months, Comporium was able to connect the first YEC member to the new network.  By the end of the first year, more than 2,100 YEC members in northwestern York County, South Carolina, have access to broadband speeds up to 1Gbps.

Audrey Fisk was the first YEC member to get connected to high-speed internet. Fisk says, “My experience has been great so far. I couldn’t believe the difference in internet speed this service provides.”

“Our commitment to our members and making life better for those we serve is steadfast. We were the first to bring power to rural areas and now your co-op is investing in our members again through our partnership with Comporium to serve high-speed internet,” says Paul Basha, York Electric’s President and CEO.
