Our access point to Broadband Internet for our Community.

Wireless Internet Transmitter
Broadband internet is here in Skamokawa. 50 megabits per second is currently a reality for the customers listed above.
The fiber-optic internet backbone that runs right through our community has been tapped for our use in Skamokawa. The fiber backbone is owned by NoaNet, a non-profit wholesale provider of internet throughout the Pacific Northwest. We established an ISP (Internet Service Provider) business in order to purchase the service from NoaNet and invested in the infrastructure to run the fiber from the highway to our transmit point on Pleasant Point Road. We have high hopes that the increased connectivity to the internet will be good for our community and be financially viable as a business venture. Our goal is to cover our costs and pay back our initial investment over time while supporting our community.
If you would like to join please either fill out the contact form below or jump right to the service agreement and we’ll contact you to arrange installation. Hardware costs to get set up start at $50 for the receiver and most users will want a new wifi router which runs $99. Monthly costs vary from $50 to $150 depending on location and intended use.
Update June, 2019: We are actively working on a project to bring high speed internet to the Flanders/Little Cape Horn area. We anticipate it will be up and running by fall 2019. More details coming soon.
Update July, 2019: We are adding a new station at the Skamokawa Grange to increase our coverage up the valley.
