LACLEDE ELECTRIC MOVES FORWARD WITH SMART GRID SYSTEM
Missouri Cooperative Commits to Full-Scale Deployment of TUNet Communications Network
Laclede distributes energy to 35,000 members located in six south-central Missouri counties. The 1,400 square mile service territory embraces a variety of population densities including urban, suburban, commercial & industrial and rural areas that span diverse topologies ranging from thickly-forested regions to broad stretches of farmland.
Despite the increasing popularity of fiber networks, most users are still using copper cables for internet connection. Existing network devices that were purchased 5 years ago can be predominantly unprepared for fiber connection.
