Gigabit.coop

gigabit coop logoGigabit.coop is an internet service provider built on the utility cooperative model, bringing the fastest, most affordable internet to central Illinois.

As a cooperatively-owned and operated business, Gigabit.coop is pooling community resources to build and operate a broadband network in our region’s own best interest, keeping our local dollars local and multiplying those dollars to build stronger families, a stronger community, and a strong local economy.

Gigabit.coop’s model keeps revenues and jobs in the local community – close to $200 million dollars will be injected into the local economy over the next 20 years as a result of our project where other business models are corporate-focused. These other models lead to higher prices, less community control, less responsive service, and a lot of unnecessary frustration. Plus, construction and operations jobs are lost when contracts go to large out-of-town firms. That doesn’t help you or your community.

Gigabit.coop means a strong local economy fueled by good, local jobs and new economic development potential. It means being customer-focused – and transparent. And it means the lowest prices and the fastest speeds.

do good Consulting is working with Gigabit.coop to develop its business model and plan, develop marketing materials like the logo (above), flyers, PowerPoints, and a website, and promote the business to stakeholders and residents throughout the service region.
