Born to be wi-ii-ii-ii-ld… about Grant PUD’s High-Speed Network. Thanks to this tough bunch of bikers — all PUD employees, including Leroy Boyd, Mason Utter, Randy Weisheit, Ken Holsten, David Cranson and Raymond Garcia — who volunteered some of their spare time to star in an national-award-winning video about how a snail-like internet experience becomes screaming fast over Grant PUD fiber.
During the recent American Public Power Association’s (APPA) Customer Connections Conference, Grant PUD’s promotional video was recognized as one of the best in the nation. The conference took place earlier this month. Public power utilities from around the country submitted their marketing projects for a chance to win one of these coveted awards.
This year Grant PUD’s video promoting its high speed fiber network took home the best video award in its class. The video was up against numerous other entries from similar sized utilities around the country. It also received the “People’s Choice Award” during the conference. That distinction goes to the favorite video as voted on by conference attendees.
