Expanding Access to Fiber Optic Internet in our Neighborhood

Less Expensive and Faster Service providing more options besides Comcast.

Are you interested in a reliable alternative to Comcast for your internet services? So are we, did you know the city of Eugene has fiber optic cable already installed in most streets but not hooked up to certain neighborhoods? The South West Hills neighborhood is one of them. If enough resident request service we can expand access to higher speed internet to the area. Providing better service for lower prices.

Why Fiber?

Studies show homes connected to publicly owned fiber increase 3.1% in value. Fiber Internet enables every cutting-edge technology from streaming TV services, to working from home, to things we haven’t even dreamed of yet. We provide the fastest fiber service available, at one of the lowest prices in the country.

The internet provider (OnlineNW & XS Media) has a survey to gauge neighborhood interest around Eugene. Please fill it out here and support the expansion effort to provide options to more neighborhoods: https://onwxsm.servicezones.net/CityofEugene

We want to expand broadband opportunities to your community. But with many areas to choose from, our next move depends on your response. By doing our survey, you show us where demand for our services is greatest. Where we see great demand, we will do an in-depth assessment of the potential network area. If viable, we will build first to those who want it most. So encourage your neighbors to take our survey or sign up for services. Each response increases the chance of network expansion to your area.

The Best of The Best

Fiber speeds are symmetric, meaning that they operate at the same speed when downloading or uploading—an unrestricted network to support all of your remote work, gaming, video conferencing and emailing needs. One single strand of fiber delivers data at speeds up to 1 Gbps (1000Mbps), roughly 100 times faster than the average home in the US today. Our wireless network is also strong and reliable, providing speeds up to 50 Mbps and offering the flexibility to provide internet connectivity in many underserved areas that are difficult to reach with hardwired services. 

With our reliable fiber or wireless service, you can work from home hassle-free—no more long waits to upload or send messages, or to join video conferencing meetings. Chat online, stream movies and shows, send and receive family photos, and video chat with friends and loved ones, all at lightning-fast speed.
