Missouri: Carthage's municipal power utility offering Internet access

"Broadband internet service is CW&EP's newest utility"

"The Internet is not likely to replace water and electric, but the technological advance has proven it's a use as a 'utility.'"

"'It's getting that way,' said Chuck Bryant, director of marketing and technical services for Carthage Water & Electric Plant about Internet service. 'That's how we approach it. It's becoming a utility for the people.'"

CW&EP provides broadband dial-up, high speed wireless and fiber optic network services to its roughly 1,000 customers in the area. Since starting its Internet services in 2000, the utility is complete with its infrastructure buildup. Bryant said that CW&EP is basically providing its customers with pipe and bandwidth and they're placing what they want on it."
