Guadalupe Valley Electric Cooperative (GVEC) is a cooperative serving South Central Texas, providing electricity, high-speed internet, HVAC and solar services to residents over a 3,500 square mile area.
In GVEC’s quest to expand their services into the fiber broadband market they needed a partner to help them execute at the lowest total cost. Having access to top vendors and high-quality parts at price points comparable to that of high-volume purchasers was crucial. With these factors available, GVEC could prove their longer-term model and build at price points to sustain growth.
HOW KGPCo HELPED
KGPCo enabled GVEC to become a fiber-based broadband service provider as part of their core mission. The reliable source of products, competitive pricing, access to key vendors, industry consultation and strategic direction all contributed to GVEC expand their business and commit to even more customers with fiber connectivity.
IN THE CUSTOMER'S WORDS
“Providing quality broadband service to our members is every bit as important as the advent of delivering electricity was in the 1930s when we were founded. It is a vital part of a healthy economy and meets the quality of life our members desire. KGPCo helped GVEC make a name for Electric Cooperatives with key industry vendors as a viable broadband provider. We are grateful that KGPCo assisted us with superior product selections and for their continued support throughout the project.”
