We are up and running!
Since our last update just before the holidays, quite a bit has happened. In the past two weeks, we have connected 10 new members to the Internet, three of those are in the Easley Rd area. Our equipment has been installed in the American Mountaineering Center and our fiber provider has begun installation.
As a co-op (and not a for profit Internet provider), we have provided a "network status" page on our website that not only shows if and when our Internet connections have gone down but also the total network utilization by our members in daily, weekly and monthly usage graphs. We believe in complete transparency.
We also added a "tower location" page to show you where you need to be able to see on Lookout Mountain from your residence to get our service. This has helped answer the "can I get your service" question.
Our goal is to keep signing up new members over the next couple of weeks so when our fiber is installed (and the bills begin rolling in), we are at or near covering costs. Prior to the fiber install, we are offering a 50% discount on your service. The download speeds are still very fast and current members have been quite happy with the service.
If you are interested and ready, head over to our "sign-up" page. This will start the process on our end and we'll be in touch to schedule either an install or a meet and greet and go over the details in person.
Lastly, we have been asked if this service is for residential customers only. The short answer is, no. We are very interested in working with small businesses in the valley.
If you refer anyone to us that signs up for service, we will give you a $50 service credit for each referral! Word of mouth from happy members is better than any advertising dollars.
Thanks for the interest and we look forward to getting you on-line!
