From our Customers
“I was excited to see my area was going to be part of the NEK Community Broadband pilot project. I signed up as soon as I saw the news. It been a struggle at times working from home on DSL. I have had to drive to the office just to move a large file. I was pretty skeptical when construction on Oregon Road started in November. I wasn’t sure it was possible to get so much done by the end of the year. But it got done and I was connected before December 31st. Download speed is more than 50 times faster that dual ban DSL, and upload speed is more than 250 times faster. Thanks, NEK Broadband!”
“First of all, we’re very grateful for the opportunity to finally have broadband access. I honestly didn’t think that we would have it for another 5 or 10 years. The installation crew were awesome, and it was painless and quite fast. The biggest difference that we’ve noticed is the quality of streaming television and the drastic reduction in buffering. The high-definition picture quality is much improved. Thanks for bringing the Northeast Kingdom into the 21st century!”
