An electric cooperative serving much of rural Palo Pinto County is bringing high-speed Internet to residents at a steady pace, officials said last week.

Early progress has been made in the Possum Kingdom Lake area, Kanyon Payne, manager of Internet products and services for United Cooperative Services, said during a call.

“As far as the Possum Kingdom area, we’re still building out the northeast quadrant,“ Payne said. “And we’re making our way toward the southwest portion of the lake.”

United Cooperative Services counts more than 100,000 meters on more than 11,000 miles of lines in 14 North Texas counties.

Work has begun in southwest areas of the county including near Santo.
