What goes up must come down

We started working on bringing fiber optic internet & TV to areas around Carnegie almost two years ago. We are almost done with that project, with almost 750 homes & businesses now connected to one of the most state-of-the-art networks in Oklahoma. But… We still have to take down all of the old copper-based wires and cables up in the air, along with all of the old equipment we used to use! On May 31, we started the wreck-out process in earnest, right north of Main Street by the Nazarene Church. It’s going to take us all summer to tear down lines and clean up after ourselves

Know What’s Below… Call 811 before you dig!

We have it on the tailgates of our trucks, and you’ve heard the Call Okie jingle on the radio a hundred times. We just can’t say how important it is for you to make sure there are no underground cables before you dig, trench, or do other excavation work on your property or on the highway or county right-of-way. Right before Memorial Day weekend, we had to repair a 25-pair cable that was accidentally cut by a contractor that didn’t call 811 to have us locate our lines. It’s not only a good idea, it’s the law. Oklahoma law requires anyone planning on digging or excavation to call for a locate of all underground facilities. It’s a quick, one-minute phone call, and it’s free. What’s not free is if you cut, even accidentally, a cable, water pipe, or electric line. Also, and most importantly, you are endangering your life. Underground power lines can kill in an instant. So just do the right thing… Call 811 before you dig!

Today our employees took a field trip to the Carnegie Elementary School to assist the fifth grade students in an experiment with their “egg drop” project. We were glad to help out in the name of science!
