How it works
Piedmont Electric Membership Cooperative (PEMC) and Riverstreet Networks have joined forces to bring better internet to your area!
Our mission is to ensure rural communities have the internet service they need. We are strategically searching for unserved and underserved broadband communities. Data collected will aid us in determining where these places may be. By registering your address, you are expressing your interest in having a better internet solution. It's really that simple! Once enough interest has been expressed in a specific area, we will consider expanding our service network there. There are a large amount of resources and labor required to provide broadband service. The more supporters in your area, the more likely we are to bring internet to your door.
If you would like to be among the first in your neighborhood to have an improved internet solution, here is what you can do:
- Join the crowd. Sign up to be a backer!
- Spread the word to your neighbors and community
Most importantly, tell your friends, neighbors, and share on social media! The more who participate, the closer you are to a better online experience!
What is fiber?
A fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network carries up to 1000 times more information then traditional cable television and telephone networks and is far less susceptible to electromagnetic interference. "Fiber" refers to the transmission of information as light impulses along a strand of glass, smaller than a human hair.
What are the advantages of fiber?
- Fastest internet speeds - up to 1 Gigabit download speeds (that's 1,000 Mbps!)
- Connect multiple devices to the internet without sacrificing speed
- Stream movies and TV shows with no buffering interruptions
- Boost your online gaming advantage by reducing lag time
- High quality and reliable connection
- Increased home value
What is fixed wireless?
Fixed wireless internet uses a receiver on your home to transmit an internet signal from the nearest wireless base station. This provides internet access without the need of physical cables.
What are the advantages of fixed wireless?
- Fast and effective way to bring better internet service to your home
- No data caps
- No physical cable required
- High speed service similar to other broadband services
