BRMEMC is working hard to bring fiber internet service to its members.

Hanging Dog Fiber Expansion

Four years ago, BRMEMC was awarded $3 million in funding through USDA's Community Connect Grant to expand internet access to the Hanging Dog and Grape Creek areas. The expansion was delayed due to a required USDA archeological study of the area. BRMEMC recently received approval to proceed with the fiber optic internet expansion. At project completion approximately 1,000 residents will have access to BRMEMC’s fiber optic internet service.

Sign up now to ensure there is no delay in receiving service once construction is completed, and to ensure you receive their fiber connection with no up-front costs.

The timeframe for building fiber under this grant is two years, which means that not everyone will get service immediately. BRMEMC will commit resources to complete the fiber expansion within this two year window, but we will also be lighting up homes and businesses as we go. 

BRMEMC will be establishing a Community Computing Center located at the Hanging Dog General Store to allow residents who do not yet have access to high-speed service to access free computers connected to the network.
