Please browse this site to view our current service areas, internet packages and construction updates, as well as register your interest in receiving CDEC's Red Bolt Broadband. We will contact you as soon as construction begins in your area.
What is Red Bolt Broadband?
CDEC’s new broadband service is the byproduct of the co-op's
effort to improve the reliability, efficiency, safety and quality of electric
service that CDEC provides. By upgrading our distribution system's communications, the co-op can implement Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition
(SCADA), a digital energy management system used to monitor, control and
optimize the electric distribution system performance. This upgrade requires us
to install fiber-optic lines and other high-speed internet equipment throughout
our system. As we build this infrastructure and activate it, Red Bolt Broadband becomes available to homes and businesses at speeds that meet and exceed the Federal
Communication Commission’s current standard for broadband internet service.
* For a limited time during construction in each area.
