Hello, I am part of Phase 1, and am very excited about the prospect of "real" internet connectivity after nearly 20 years of garbage! My question is this - your crews have strung fiber all the way to the end of our road (runs right past out house!!) and have strung the messenger wire between the street pole and the pole near our house (we live a little off the road). When will the fiber be run that goes from the street pole to the pole near our house?? By the way, the crews that came out and ran the messenger wire were excellent and very friendly! Thank you

Can you tell me which zone I am in? The zone is not labeled on the map I see. We're very close to Brooklyn. What do we need to do to be in the Brooklyn group? As with many members, our only option for wired internet is dial up. We're in a dead spot and some of us can barely get cellular. All the members need and want this fiber, how can we speed up deployment?

Thanks for the response, does that apply to one address that is already registered and we have two different buildings/power meters at the address. Both of those buildings that are at that address would need fiber service. Do we only need to register the address once, or should we register the address twice and indicate that it is for a second power meter?

For members that pre-register, I see that the installation fee is waived. Will this include service hookup to two buildings at the property address? We have two meters (one with a garage and apartment above and then a house down the drive several hundred yards). Will we be able to have Fiber hookup at both buildings without additional installation fees?

The fiber was recently installed along Conservation Club Road near my house, but to my knowledge not installed on Conservation Club LANE which is the road I am on and within the first zone. I’d hate to be within a few hundred feet of the fiber, squarely within the first zone yet not have it available.

In your description of the SCI fiber program, you do not state whether or not phone service will be required. I am interested in this only if it saves money. Endeavor requires I get their phone service in order to have internet. This is common with other internet providers. Question: Will a land line be required to have this internet service?

G.L. Woods: Hi Mr. Woods, As a cooperative, our profits are returned to our members rather than provided to stockholders or private owners. Capital credits are the member’s share of the co-op’s net margins (revenue received by your cooperative minus expenses.) They are divided up proportionally by the amount that each member paid during each specific year. Those who paid more will get more back, and those who paid less will receive a smaller amount back. In the past, capital credits have been paid both through electric bill credits and actual checks sent to members. We will private message you with the amounts and years that capital credits have been paid to your account. We are seeking to provide critical services, use revenues to recover costs, and return what is left. SCI Fiber helps with that equation because, as SCI's costs to provide electricity rise, the additional revenue from SCI Fiber can help cover those costs, allowing us to provide stable electric rates in the future.

As I'm reading your response to Ed Edwards, you mention "profits will be reinvested & returned to members". When & how is that done? I've been with REMC since 1995 and have never received a dividend. Prior to that I lived in Missouri and was part of an electric coop there that I continue to this day receiving annual dividend checks. Please clarify - thanks

If users choose to utilize SCI Fiber’s wireless router, we plan to provide a Calix 844G-1. The Calix 844G-1 device is a combination device that includes an optical network terminal (ONT) and a wireless router. The Calix 844G-1 will also allow us to troubleshoot problems quicker which leads to shorter down times in event of issues.

Ed Edwards: Hi Ed! Information on our TV packages will be coming soon. That is a great question. First, to our knowledge, Endeavor provides a good service, so we’d rather call the following items differences, not necessarily advantages depending on your point of view. Ultimately, the services should be comparable. Here are a few differences that SCI REMC members should understand when dealing with comparable products offered at comparable prices. - SCI Fiber will be made available to all members; even those who live in less densely populated areas. SCI REMC took the risk to do this when others would not. -SCI Fiber is a benefit to SCI REMC electric members because excess revenues from the fiber side will be utilized to help cover expenses on the electric side and help maintain or even reduce electric rates. -Because SCI Fiber is a part of the SCI REMC cooperative, profits will be reinvested and returned to members. -SCI Fiber seeks to provide SCI REMC members and other folks in the community a straight forward bill with no mysterious charges. Before committing to service with another provider, we suggest that folks get a copy of an actual bill and look for unexplained charges. Some providers have as much as $14 added to bills for which there is no service provided.

Right now, if you look at the status bars for each area, your area has a great response, next in line after the Phase 1 and Phase 2 folks.

The best thing you can do is tell your neighbors about SCI Fiber and get them to pre-register.

I had the same than as Melody Mallory stated. Endeavor rep came about installing Fiber with the same expected time frame, even referred to it as Phase 2. When I told them I was pre-registered for SCI Fiber and asked if this was the same thing as that and if you guys where working together he said yes. So it appears that Endeavor reps are purposely try to trick people to sign up for them. Are you guys sharing any part of the run from the main hubs to the houses, or is this 100% separate? I will say its nice to go from nothing to 2 companies competing , but with Endeavor trying to trick people makes it easier to choose who to keep the pre ordor with.

A friend of ours who has pre-registered was visited on a Sunday by a representative of Endevour. This representative stated they were with SCIREMC and had to have paperwork filled out before Phase Two could come to our area. They left a contract with our friend. It was for 2 years & was more money than quoted, plus several charges! They also stated the router was required to be bought from them. Our friend told them he would read over the Contract & let them know. My questions: Does this Company have anything to do with SCI Fiber?

Well I’m still holding out hope that AT&T will come the 1/2 mile down the road to my house. Probably won’t happen either. Not holding out on being in Phase 3 either.

Ralph Chastin: Our primary goal is to provide a superior service on day 1, and we are taking the proper steps to ensure quality and dependability over speed of deployment. We have a testing period prior to the first connections, and we must ensure the system is fully ready before we launch. With that said, Phase 1 connections are expected to start in January 2019, and the first connections for Phase 2 are expected to start in July 2019 and run through early 2020. The timing of future phases is being planned now and is dependent on multiple factors.

If your area has 100 members and 85 pre-register, your area’s percentage will be 85%. If another area has 1,000 people and 650 sign up, that area’s percentage will be 65%. Your area would rank higher even though the overall member count is smaller.

Ok I hope it's ok to ask this here: in the past, I've tried multiple different cable companies, in hopes to be provided with fast and reliable internet service, to no avail. The main reason they couldn't do it, was because they would have to run a line underground about 400 ft away from an existing pole. Which I believe is how you guys run your power line to my residence. I assume that you'll be running single mode fiber cable. What are the chances that you could run armored single mode fiber to my residence? I'd do anything to get this to happen. I'd even be willing to help you guys with whatever services you need. I went to school for Computer Information Systems, so I could always be of help regarding WAN. Feel free to contact me at any time, as my information is in your guys systems. 2558 greasy Creek. Ty

I need your service now! The top half of Arthur rd cannot get highspeed internet. We can only get Satalite, it's very expensive and unreliable. Last I checked we did at least have a choice of 2 service providers. Unfortunatly you must also pay for their satalite TV to get it with one of them. I realize for money reasons you will install in areas with the most people interested but I'd really like it if you installed in areas without options. We need you yesterday! I'm tired of paying $70+ a monthfor 10 g of data. It is gone in a flash. Not that our speeds could even support streaming but it would be nice to feel like I live in the present technological civilization. We can't even get a cell signal here.

Hi, is it possible to change your tier after it has been installed in your home if it is not enough mbps to do the things you would like it to? Also, if you have an existing landline phone can you keep your same number? Is it considered a landline still? Will it work even when power is out like current landlines? Thank you! Very excited about actual, reliable internet!

Will IPv6 be available? Also, if I use my own router, will your modem be just a modem, or will it have some sort of router built into it as well? What I'm asking is will I be able to use your modem simply to access the network without any other hurdles in the way so that I can use my own equipment?

Dear SCI REMC: THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! Our family cannot wait to have your fiber service installed!!! We have been reading about the addition of the 500 Mbps tier and we think this is also excellent news--thank you! It hits that awesome "sweet spot" between the 100 Mbps and the 1,000 Mbps (1 Gbps) plans. Plus, it's a fair deal for symmetrical service, without any quotas! This cannot happen quickly enough. Also, we just noticed, too, that in addition to adding the 500 Mbps tier for $100.00 per month, now, the $40.00 per month fee for VoIP service has been waived for those purchasing the 1 Gbps tier, at $150.00 per month!!! Honestly, that $40.00 per month fee for VoIP service seemed a little expensive to us, particularly for those purchasing the more expensive tiers; however, with that fee being waived on the 1 Gbps tier, this makes this tier that much more attractive. Plus, it makes this top tier much more economical, since it just received a $40.00 per month price cut!!! Thank you, SCI REMC for installing and providing these excellent services for your co-op members!!! Our family will continue to spread the word on these great upcoming fiber services from SCI REMC; again, thank you!!! BRING ON THE FIBER!!!

Chad Witham: Construction will begin for phase 1 at the end of May. The backbone is the main fiber loop that will carry high-speed internet to our entire service territory. From the backbone/loop fiber lines will be carried into specific service areas. From those areas, we will connect to individual member homes. You will sign a contract for service immediately prior to installing fiber inside your home. Installation is free for members if you preregister and then sign up for service (sign a contract) once we are in your area. If we have to go back to your home after construction is completed in that area, there will be an installation fee of $300.

I have some questions in regards to your comment below that you’ll connect members that have a signed contract in phase one once the backbone construction has been completed. 1. Where and when do we sign contracts? 2. What is considered the backbone construction? 3. What is the tap fee to actually connect to the fiber? I have heard some numbers from other areas and most of them are well outside what seems reasonable or affordable once again limiting those that can get high speed Internet.

We are more than excited to hear this. We once had FTTH with Smithville Telephone before we built this new home and moved in. When we first bought the property 11 years ago Smithville told us they would have FTTH out here (Stinesville) in two years. They've told us that every year for 10 years and just this last month told us they "might" have it out here in three years. I hope SCIREMC beats that record. But I also hope you will offer TV service as well like Smithville did when we had them.

We're very excited about this. I use the internet to make a living, and regularly drive to a nearby town to sit in coffee shops just to get work done. That's because right now we get our internet via cell phone, and that's only possible with a booster antenna placed on the roof, as high as we can get it. Our speeds are typically about 1.5mbps, with 0.2mbps being typical for the evening, making even basic email almost unusable, nevermind video. I will be telling my neighbors about this!
