Broadband Project OVERCOME

Welcome to the news page for Clinton County's Project OVERCOME broadband technology pilot!

The network has been turned up and is in the process of being tested over the next several months! A group of more than 30 people gathered in Turney on September 17, 2021, to learn more about the project and how faster Internet speeds can help them. Many of the attendees signed up to participate in the Project OVERCOME Research Test for New High-Speed Wireless Internet options in areas where fiber is not yet available.


The Clinton County Initiative is looking for as many people in Clinton County as possible to do two things:

1) Help us identify our county's biggest strengths, challenges, and dreams. Clinton County has a lot going for us! What we need to know from you is what should be maintained and what should we grow as people are considering a move to Clinton County.

2) Be a part of the statewide effort to map where we have gaps in Internet coverage. There are a lot of efforts underway and funds potentially coming to rural areas to help ensure everyone is up to speed. The only way to know for sure what is working and what isn't is to ask residents. That's you!

Please take just a few minutes to share your voice as leaders in business, education, health care, local government, nonprofit, faith, civic service organizations gather in The Clinton County Initiative to plan and follow-through on our county resident's collective priorities and opportunities for making our quality of life the best it can be!

Let's maximize our potential by working together!

Watch for information sessions specific to broadband topics to be announced this summer. In the meantime, take the survey now to join the action!

JOIN THE ACTION

This collaborative project is a partnership of the following organizations that have been awarded a one-year grant through the technology nonprofit US Ignite thanks to funding from the National Science Foundation and Schmidt Futures. The National Science Foundation is funding this work in part under Cooperative Agreement 2044448.







Wireless technology like this is barely noticeable from ground-level and could be a powerful connector for people in the county. Photos provided by United Electric Cooperative/United Fiber.


The general area chosen to conduct this experiment of new broadband technology is starting in Turney, MO.

The map below is only an estimated area and more information will be released in Summer 2021 with specific invitations and instructions for those living and working at an address within the testing area who are interested in high-speed broadband. Thanks for your interest and patience as we coordinate all of the technology and partners to roll out this project as quickly as possible!


Thanks to Wade Farms for partnering with us to elevate the equipment for this project! These are shots of the grain leg being used. (Above map and photos below courtesy of United Fiber.)

Turney residents and Clinton County Initiative volunteers and partners gathered in June to enjoy ice cream, learn more about the project, and share how faster Internet speeds would improve their quality of life, education, and business opportunities.
