About Beacon Broadband

Beacon Broadband is a wholly owned subsidiary of Coos-Curry Electric Cooperative on the southern Oregon coast. About 85 years ago, Ivan Laird couldn’t get the power company that owned transmission lines across his property to provide him electric service, so he founded the electricity cooperative.

Beacon Broadband will bring internet and video to David and all the residents in rural Curry and Coos Counties.
