Eot backer web v2 01

Add your name to the list and help make it happen!

Your local Internet and phone company, EOT has already built a next generation fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network in several neighborhoods in Hermiston. Businesses and residents in those areas have access to the fastest Internet in Hermiston—EOT’s Velocity Internet™.

We are ready to expand the Velocity fiber network, and we need your help to decide where to build next. 

We’ve identified 10 “zones” (neighborhoods) in Hermiston.  EOT will commit to constructing fiber in the areas that receive the most support and reach their pre-construction “backer” goal. The amount of work and expense to bring fiber optic Gigabit service to a neighborhood is huge. Simply put, the more backers in your zone, the more likely we are to bring fiber to your door.

 

What you can do to bring fiber to your neighborhood

If you want your neighborhood to have access to the fastest and most reliable Internet service available, here is what you can do:

  1.      Sign up to be a backer by entering your address above to get started. If you are in a targeted zone, a $4.99                     registration fee will be required and used towards your future installation cost.

  2.      Get your neighbors to be backers

We need your help to spread the word. The first zone to meet the goal gets authorized for construction. The other zones will follow as they qualify for construction. Thus, it's very important that we spread the news within each zone about this exciting new service. If you are outside one of the zones we still need you to rally your neighbors as we need to know where to go next. 

What is fiber?

 

EOT’s Velocity network uses superior technology to that of area telephone and cable television providers. A fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network like the one EOT is building carries up to 1000 times more information as traditional cable television and telephone networks. That means the fastest internet speeds in Hermiston. In addition, a fiber network doesn’t use metal like the copper used in telephone networks and the coaxial cable used in cable networks. Absence of metal means less disruption to the signal resulting in a clearer high definition Internet and voice connection.

 

 What are the advantages of fiber?

  •        The fastest Internet speeds in Hermiston—up to 1 Gigabit download speeds (that’s 1,000 Mbps!)

  •        Connect multiple devices to the Internet without sacrificing speed

  •        Stream Netflix, Amazon Prime, and other online movies, TV shows and videos

  •        Boost your online gaming advantage by reducing lag time

  •        Highest quality and most reliable connection

  •        Increased home values*

So let’s get the word out and let’s do this for Hermiston!

 

 

Questions? Feel free to call EOT at 541-289-7000 and talk to a local and friendly representative about your options. Together, we're helping to build a better Hermiston! 

 

 

 

 

* In 2015, a report, funded in part by the Fiber to the Home Council, showed that homes with gigabit availability have average values that are about 3.1 percent higher than those in areas without fiber connectivity.

EOT is Expanding the Velocity Fiber Network in Hermiston!

4:45pm April 1, 2016

CrowdFiber Launch Post 

Great news for the residents of Hermiston—Eastern Oregon Telecom’s (EOT) board of directors recently voted to expand the company’s fiber-to-the-home network.  Soon, even more residents and businesses will be able to take advantage of EOT’s Gigabit-speed Velocity Internet ™.

EOT Velocity Internet is currently available to about 475 homes and businesses in Hermiston. Response to the service has been great, and we are excited to offer more homes and businesses in Hermiston the opportunity to get ultra high-speed Internet with excellent customer service at competitive rates.

We have identified 10 areas or “zones” in Hermiston where we are considering building fiber. Rather than selecting the next fiber expansion area, we will build where consumer demand is the strongest. People interested in a fiber connection to their home or business are asked to enter their address from the homepage of this website. You can become a backer of the campaign to bring fiber service to your neighborhood by filling out a short form and paying a nominal registration fee of $4.99. EOT will build the zones that reach their pre-construction “backer” goal.

 

If your address is not in an identified zone, you can leave your contact information. If enough interest is generated in the same area, EOT will consider adding additional service zones.

 

EOT’s Velocity fiber network represents the next generation of high speed connectivity for homes and businesses. Benefits of fiber optics include significantly faster Internet speeds, home values increasing upwards of $4,000 (according to studies conducted by Corning and the FTTH Council), reliability and longevity of infrastructure, and increased economic attractiveness for new companies to relocate to the area. The network is made up of hair-thin pieces of glass called fiber optics. One small strand of fiber can carry 1,000 times as much information as traditional cable television and telephone networks.

 

In addition to offering the fastest Internet speeds in Hermiston, EOT’s Velocity Internet is competitively priced starting as low as $49.99/month for residential service with up to 100 Mbps of download speeds. And don’t forget, EOT is a local company that has been serving Eastern Oregon for 15 years. Get your name on the list today!
