 HANNIBAL, MO, January 10, 2020 — Chariton Valley (CV), hosted a celebration on Friday, January 10, at the Hannibal Board of Education Office to commemorate the completion of the district’s connection to the Chariton Valley fiber network. The new fiber connection provides students and faculty with the high-speed connectivity necessary to accommodate the district’s needs. The affordable technology supports multiple connected devices used simultaneously and further facilitates online educational resources.

“Access to high-speed fiber internet is essential to education. It allows students to fully experience e-learning and provides educators with the technology needed to employ more educational tools,” said Kirby J. Underberg, Chariton Valley’s CEO.

The establishment of the Hannibal School District’s fiber connection follows CV’s aggressive fiber expansion plan announcement, extending the company’s services to the Hannibal community and other areas across northern Missouri.

The benefits of fiber internet and CV’s commitment to its expansion into unserved and underserved areas reinforces the company’s vision of providing premier services to enhance opportunities for rural communities. Fiber provides communities with a sustainable technology that is future proof regardless of impending innovations. It allows for competitive business recruitment, leading to job opportunities, economic development and community growth.

“Technology’s role in our everyday lives is becoming increasingly more important. Reliable, high-speed fiber connections allow anyone the opportunity to compete in the global marketplace and not be hindered by location. Chariton Valley is proud to serve the Hannibal community with fiber internet and encourages both residents and businesses to take advantage of the services we offer,” said Underberg.
