On August 18, 2010, Peoples Telephone became the recipient of a federal grant to lay over 600 miles of fiber optic cable throughout East Texas. This fiber network will provide the backbone to provide internet connectivity to industrial, medical and educational facilities spanning over 13 counties. In certain areas, Peoples will not only provide the fiber network, but will also be able to offer the end-user connection as well. The new fiber network will position Peoples to face the dramatically changing industry of telecommunications.
