KISSIMMEE, Fla., May 6, 5:30 pm – Just two months after opening its telecommunications division, Kissimmee Utility Authority (KUA) today celebrated the signing of its 1,000th telephone customer. This important milestone was reached months ahead of schedule after a commercial launch of the service on March 2.

The landmark customer is Julisabeth Reyes of Kissimmee who discovered KUA’s telephone service after seeing “the patriotic brochure in my utility bill.”

In recognition of the rapid establishment of the telephone service, Reyes will receive a gift bag and a complimentary calling card with 1,000 minutes of airtime — symbolic of her designation as the 1,000th customer.

“Reaching 1,000 customers in just two months is a testament to the value and service we’re providing to our customers in Central Florida,” said KUA vice president of information technology Jef Gray. “We are certainly pleased with our remarkable growth.”

KUA, in partnership with Sparks Communications of New Smyrna Beach, offers affordable, flat rate calling plans to residential and small business customers. Residential calling plans range from $24.95 – $58.95 per month and include local and long distance calling as well as popular features like call waiting, call forwarding, call block, speed dialing and voice mail.

Founded in 1901, KUA is Florida’s sixth largest community-owned utility providing electric, water, and telecommunication services to 170,000 residents in five Central Florida counties.
