ATMC Works to Upgrade Speeds for Thousands of Members

ATMC has begun a two-phase network improvement project that will provide over 30,000 ATMC members access to faster broadband speeds by the end of 2022. As faster broadband speeds become available, ATMC will increase speeds on most internet packages with no additional cost. In phase one, internet speeds of up to 600 Mbps will be available. At the completion of phase two, internet speeds approaching one gigabit are expected to be available via a hybrid fiber optic to the community and DOCSIS 3.1 to the home connection.

This hybrid fiber-DOCSIS 3.1 approach will provide internet speeds up to three times faster than what is currently available. In addition, this approach will cut the time needed to provide gigabyte broadband speeds from likely 10 years to a period as short as 18-24 months.

Capital Credits Coming to Qualified Members

Each year, ATMC refunds portions of revenue not used to cover expenses in a given year to members both past and present. These refunds are called Capital Credits. ATMC’s Board of Directors recently voted to allocate $1.5 million in Capital Credits to cooperative members who had qualifying service in 1998 and/or 2019. Current members receiving a Capital Credit refund of $50 or less will see the credit applied to their September bill statement, those receiving a disbursement of more than $50 will receive a check prior to the Annual Meeting which will be held virtually on October 2nd.

To find out more information about Capital Credits, please call 910-754-4311.
