It’s official: MS electric co.’s can now offer internet to their customers

Governor Phil Bryant made HB 366 law today, making internet access to rural customers more attainable.

No word if local electric co-ops, like ACE and TEPA, will start offering these services.

From Governor Bryant:

This morning I signed HB 366 into law. The Mississippi Broadband Enabling Act grants electric cooperatives the authority to establish affiliates to serve broadband in the state.

Many rural Mississippians will benefit from this law.
