Sept 2018 - We have completed building 2 new repeater sites in Smith Valley which has expanded our coverage area and increased capacity in the valley. We have also completely rebuilt our main tower in Smith Valley and installed upgraded equipment to accommodate the ever increasing bandwidth demand. We have also completed our overall network IP addressing and software upgrades in our continuing efforts to improve our Internet service.

Jan 2018 - We are currently taking advantage of the lack of real winter weather and are building 2 new repeater sites in Smith Valley to expand our coverage area there.

Dec 2017 - We are happy to announce that we have successfully completed our long-planned relocation and upgrade on our main relay tower on the mountain near Topaz Lake! We started planning this a year ago with a new long-term lease agreement and the purchasing of all new equipment over the past 6 months. Phase 1 was completed last month in November and Phases 2 and 3 were completed over the past week. Phase 1 involved installing new mounting brackets on the tower at our new location and installation of all new electrical and communications cabling. In Phase 2, we installed all new antennas and transmitters and then connected and tested everything. In Phase 3, we switched the network and all customers over to the new equipment. We were then able to take down all of the old equipment from the tower that the previous owners had placed there. This very important relocation and equipment upgrade has doubled our bandwidth capacity and has added redundancy and backup systems at this critical relay point in our network.

Oct 2017 - We have completed a total rebuild of one of our main repeater sites in Smith Valley - completely replacing the old rig in Wellington below the "SV" that the previous owners had setup. The new repeater site is taller, stronger and has MUCH more capacity as well as an increased coverage area. We switched customers in this area over to the new tower on November 1st.

Sept 2017 - We have completed a total rebuild of one of our main repeater sites in TRE - completely replacing the old junky tripod rig as well as the failing power line and transmitters that the previous owners had setup. The new tower is super-reinforced with a couple of tons of concrete along with plenty of rebar and deeply embedded into the hilltop. This new tower should be able to withstand all the wind that mother nature can blow at it! We also ran new power lines underground up to the new tower and equipped it with new higher capacity radios and antennas. We switched customers in this sector over to the new tower on October 1st and are already seeing a huge difference in performance.

July 2017 - The long-planned upgrades to all of our Smith Valley links have now been completed and MUCH more bandwidth is now being delivered to the valley! Also our Smith Valley network is now running on our new Super-Customized battery backup system and can now handle the longer extended power outages which have become all too common in our area.

June 2017 - Our Holbrook repeater site has been entirely rebuilt and rewired for better coverage and much better reliability. Over the past year we have been rebuilding all of our existing tower & repeater sites so that they are better equipped for power outages, high winds and anything else that mother nature (and NV Energy) throws at us. We will continue our work until all of the repeater sites from the former owners have been rebuilt properly and/or replaced. Our goal is the best and most reliable Internet service available!

May 2017 - We have been very busy these past couple of months installing new towers and repeaters in Smith Valley. We now have more coverage in the valley with even more in the works! We have also upgraded our backbone capacity to bring even more bandwidth to ALL of our customers.

Sept 2016 - We have a very big upgrade coming up next month which will enable our new expanded backbone capacity to reach all of our customers! The upgrade will involve changing out the main wireless links from our fiber backbone all the way to the office. This upgrade will require some downtime, but we will let you know in advance of when and how long. We will be sending out an email soon to announce the exact date and time of the upgrade and expected downtime. With the cost saving methods we have been implementing and the backbone upgrades we have planned, we will soon be offering all of our customers increased bandwidth. We will offer this increased bandwidth at NO ADDITIONAL cost to you! This means you will pay the same monthly price but will get more (speed) for your money! Exact details for this upgrade will be coming soon.

Under New Ownership - September 2015!

Since taking over the business in September 2015, we have made several important changes and improvements in the network. We have now implemented multiple layers of security including physical layers, several layers of firewalls, network load balancing, network isolation and segregation via VLANs and physical separation of network segments through additional routers and switching components.

We continue to make improvements to our tower and repeater sites and will introduce newer technologies and upgrades to make the network more stable, reliable and secure. You will not find a more secure network anywhere. We are making great strides to make our network, and your Internet connection, the fastest and most reliable available!
