Theresa Oberle - Socket's You-Make-the-Difference Winner for October!


 

Congratulations to Theresa Oberle, Marketing Specialist, for being named the October recipient of Socket’s You-Make-The-Difference award!
  
Theresa first joined Socket as a marketing intern in June 2012. In July 2013, she returned to the company for a full-time position with Socket's marketing team. Since then, she's worn many hats - from coordinating Socket's appearances at local events, to managing our online reputation, as well as writing for our newsletter and blog. 
 
As one co-worker who nominated her for the award said, "Theresa has a genuine concern for Socket." Another said, "She never hesitates to lend a helping hand when she sees a need around Socket." 
    
In her free time, Theresa enjoys playing video games (one of her current favs is Undertale). She also makes sure her two bearded dragons are well-fed with plenty of bugs. 
 
"Socket is really awesome," says Theresa. "We get the freedom to try new things here and see what works. You don't get those opportunities at a lot of other places." 
  
Congratulations, Theresa!
 

"Fiber's On Fire" in 2015


 
According to a recent study released by the Fiber to the Home (FTTH) Council, in conjunction with research partner RVA, fiber deployments grew by 13% in the United States in 2015. Nearly 3 million homes were passed with fiber this year, bringing the total amount to around 26 million - and nearly 50% of those homes are now directly connected to that fiber network.
 
Customers with fiber to the home connections, at any speed, report 50% higher satisfaction than those on cable and DSL networks. It's just another reason we're focused on getting fiber access to as many places in mid-Missouri as possible.
