Clay County Connect is a wholly owned subsidiary of Clay County Electric Cooperative Corporation (CCECC).
CCECC has provided reliable, safe, and affordable electric to its members for over 80 years. In the 1930’s, the Rural Electrification Administration provided vision and leadership to bring electric to rural areas. The adaptation of electricity led to productivity growth in agriculture which served as the central industry for rural life, while other sectors lagged in the economy. Rural demands for the newest manufactured items found in urban American homes were dormant. Given the widening disparities between rural and urban settings, the Rural Electrification Administration pushed forward with the electrification of rural America.
The forward-thinking vision and leadership of CCECC’s Board of Directors approved the decision to form a high-speed broadband internet company, Clay County Connect. This company will offer fast and reliable internet connections for our rural communities. The vision of our CCECC leaders believe that bringing reliable broadband to our rural communities will spur economic growth as well as fiber trades in our rural communities. Broadband will bring new streams of information and narrow the cultural, educational, commercial, and national marketplace division between urban and rural America, just as the Rural Electrification Movement did in the 1930’s.
