In February, Tri-CoGo reached 7,000 subscribers, another milestone on the journey to deliver high-speed fiber internet to every EMC member. Since the first mile of fiber was built in 2021, a commitment to the community has driven the project. 1,500 miles of fiber later, service is available at almost every Tri-County EMC location and Tri-CoGo, the cooperative’s broadband affiliate, is one of Georgia’s fastest-growing internet providers.

Realtors know that homes getting fiber internet availability increase in value by about 6%. Economic developers know that prospects insist on fiber availability. “Fiber internet is the ultimate technology for connectivity, literally best in class,” said Joe Lightsey, Tri-CoGo’s Fiber Operations Manager. “Gig speeds available at every location change a community.”

For homeowners, having reliable internet at an affordable price means the ability to work from home, stream content, complete schoolwork, and take advantage of technology not previously available in rural areas. Those needs are now fulfilled.

Business and industry are also now sharing the advantages of Tri-CoGo’s fiber internet availability. “Beyond mere connectivity, fiber internet unlocks economic development and growth opportunities,” says Jones County Development Authority’s Executive Director, Haley Watson. “In an era where reliable internet is a necessity, Tri-CoGo has been bridging digital divides and propelling communities toward a brighter future.”

Tri-County members interested in subscribing to Tri-CoGo’s internet service are encouraged to visit or call 478.986.8320 or 1.844.662.7569. Installation and a WiFi-6 capable router are included for free with every subscription.

“I’m incredibly proud of our Tri-CoGo team for reaching this milestone and leveraging Tri-County EMC’s fiber investment to meet so many internet needs in our community,” commented Greg Mullis, Tri-CoGo’s Chief Operating Officer. “We are humbled by the trust placed in us. Reaching 7,000 customers is truly a testament to the value of word-of-mouth, of customers enjoying fiber internet, and telling their friends and neighbors about this experience.”
