CFEC Broadband

High speed Fiber Optic internet will finally be available in the tri-county area!

CFEC is one of the first cooperatives in Florida to offer fiber-to-the-home broadband to its members. This new service will offer new economic, educational and lifestyle benefits for our rural communities. 

Questions about our broadband project? Follow this page along with our Facebook and newsletter for more information and updates! We look forward to serving you as your broadband partner.

What is fiber?

  • The CFEC Broadband project will use fiber optic cables, strung alongside CFEC power lines to provide high-speed internet service to our rural consumers.

  • Unlike cable, DSL, satellite, and cellular internet connections, this fiber-optic technology can deliver lightning fast download and upload speeds, with no long-term contract or data caps, just competitive prices and exceptional broadband service.

How will this affect me as a Member of the electric cooperative?

  • CFEC, with the help of Conexon, will be extending fiber to ALL CFEC consumers as well as others living in CFEC territories wherever possible. Broadband customers will be billed separately from CFEC utility members.

  • Utility bills for CFEC Members will NOT increase as a result of the Broadband project!

  • In fact, proceeds from Broadband may one day be able to reduce the need for utility rate increases in the future. The greater the success of Broadband, the greater the reward for CFEC members!

What's next?

  • Those interested in Broadband service can follow the CFEC Facebook Page and cfec.com as well as our monthly newsletter the Co-op Connection for more detailed information on the project as it progresses.

In the coming weeks...

  • Look for information from CFEC on:

    • When will the broadband service be available in my area?​

    • How much will the service cost?

    • How can I apply for service?

"Our board of trustees and leadership team here at CFEC have been working on this subject for some time. We have taken the time to analyze the metrics, the process, and the need. We feel like CFEC is uniquely suited to deliver this service given our knowledge of and equipment in Dixie, Gilchrist and Levy Counties."
