BOYNE CITY — Great Lakes Energy Internet Service has announced that it has expanded its coverage area to embrace nearly all of West Michigan, the Muskegon urban area being the sole exception.

GLE advises that it is a partner with Great Lakes Energy Cooperative, which has provided electricity to rural Michigan families for more than six decades.

But according to a marketing spokeswoman, Shari Jones, the partnership does not imply that one must be a GLE power consumer in order to be a GLE Internet customer.

Yet because GLE covers a large rural area, Jones added, GLE Internet services now make more options available to many rural patrons and businesses.

Jones said that GLE’s Internet service expansion covers most of West Michigan’s 26 counties served by the electric cooperative along with other areas in the east half of the state.

And she stressed that GLE offers not only subscriber lines for domestic Internet users, but high-speed wireless access for businesses. She said that the service includes free e-mail and filtered content options.

Among the area’s communities in which GLE services are available are Grand Rapids, Holland, Grand Haven, Kalamazoo, Whitehall, Battle Creek and Ionia.
