WA: Co-op Members Can Sign Up for OPALCO Broadband: Internet and Phone Service | Orcas News | Honor the Orcas, Dive in! | Scoop.it

OPALCO’s member engagement effort is just starting and there is plenty of time to ask questions and give feedback on the plan to bring much better Internet plus phone service to 90% of San Juan County. When you’re ready, you can go to www.opalco.com and sign up for broadband services. The Board of Directors has asked for pre-subscription commitments from more than half the membership before agreeing to move forward and build the system, in order to ensure the project will not become a financial burden on the co-op.

 

What would members who subscribe to OPALCO’s broadband services get? For a total of $90/month per residential household – about what we’re all paying now – members would get:

 

Much better Internet service (10Mbps+ in rural areas, 50Mbps+ in population centers) designed to accomodate future expansionUnlimited local and national long distance phone service using your current phone number and existing phone (international plans also available)Wifi access in population centers and at ferry landings

 

Even if you don’t subscribe or use the Internet, the shared infrastructure will provide critical improvements to our quality of life in San Juan County. This system, because it combines fiber optic and wireless technologies, will:

 

Support improvements to our electric systemImprove public safety communication and service in emergency situationsInvite cell phone companies to expand coverage in our county while minimizing the impact to our island character.
