    1. I have nothing to do with this company, but I just saw your question, and it doesn’t look like it was answered. I’m in the same boat with you, plus I live in the valley behind the mountain in Southern Pike and the satellite companies can’t even help me. Our state representative Beth Camp just sent me this article. She told me it would be for ALL Upson EMC customers… so hopefully the answer is yes.

      1. I live in Pike County (in Meansville, GA). I have Upson EMC. Yes I just called Upson EMC in Thomaston GA and they seem to know nothing about fiber internet. Why is Southern Rivers already started putting in fiber lines and Upson EMC doesn’t seem to know anything. Its very frustrating! Can we get Beth Camp to find out what is going on? Southern Rivers is going to finish serving all of their customers before Upson EMC ever gets started.
