Thanks to all who came out for this year's Annual Meeting!

Over 250 members attended the brief annual meeting with an estimated 320+ in attendance as a whole.

The meeting's business portion was conducted like in years past with an adjournment not long after calling the meeting to order, then on to giving out the great door prizes!

Attendees were in and out in little over an hour so they could attend the Russell County Fair for the evening if they wanted to do so.

Here are this year's winners:

But that’s not the only reason to use a guest network.

Many of us have used a website to test our Internet speed. And you may have noticed that the results of these speed tests vary and often do not match what you see on your bill. Why is this? It comes down to the difference between bandwidth and speed. (Yes there’s a difference!)
