CULLMAN - Less than a month after Cullman Electric Cooperative announced a major internet project to build a fiber optic network among its substations, another major announcement was made Thursday, June 18, that 264 miles of lateral fiber lines would also be installed, connecting 12,000 homes and businesses to high speed internet.
