Socket Attends the 2015 Millersburg Celebration!


The Millersburg Celebration and parade were held last weekend, and Socket was more than happy to be a part of it again.
 
The weather was perfect, and the sky was particularly gorgeous that afternoon - we couldn't help but take some photos! It made an ideallic backdrop for the parade, which started at the Millersburg Christian Church and wound its way down to the Lions Club. At the end, a delicious potluck lunch was waiting for everyone, along with games and music.
 
We're incredibly grateful to the community for inviting us back year after year - and we plan to be a part of the community for years to come.

Susan Stephenson - Socket's You-Make-the-Difference Winner for August!



 
Congratulations to Susan Stephenson, Service Delivery Coordinator, on winning the You-Make-The-Difference Award for August!
 
Susan joined the Socket team in early 2014, and has been a valuable member of the business center ever since. Her typical day can include anything from building hosted phone systems, coordinating schedules, assisting with dispatches, pulling equipment, or, really, “whatever needs attention from a Service Delivery Coordinator.” And that can be a pretty exhaustive list.
 
“Susan gets things done, and has a positive attitude along the way,” said a co-worker who nominated her. “We should all try to mirror [her] professionalism. She takes the Core Values and Beliefs to a higher level.”
 
In her spare time, Susan enjoys swimming with her family. Her husband, Migueal, and 6-year-old daughter, Merindy, also love swimming; “My daughter thinks belly flops are the best thing since sliced bread!” Susan also loves playing cards, and “jammin’ to some awesome music with friends and family.”
 
Luckily for her, she's never short of family to jam with - with two brothers, a sister, three nieces, two nephews and a niece on the way, family functions certainly aren't boring!

“Thank you to all who voted for me!” said Susan. Congratulations!

Socket Visits the OSP Expo in Denver, CO


Four of our team members traveled out to Denver this week for the OSP Expo. They’ll be meeting with other information and communications technology vendors, as well as learning about the latest developments and best practices in the telecom industry.
  
Over 70 providers, from more than 30 countries, are expected to have representatives in attendance at the expo this year. It’s a great opportunity to learn about some of the challenges facing telecom providers internationally, as well as unique perspectives from other regional ISPs similar to Socket.
 
As we continue to expand our fiber network, it's crucial for our team members to continue learning about the field and all the latest developments. They plan to attend training sessions on testing fiber, network design and regulatory issues. 
 
We can't wait to hear what they've learned! More importantly, we can't wait to put that information to use in the coming months to help grow our network across mid-Missouri.
