Wow, what response!

2:31pm September 22, 2016

We would like to thank everyone who took the time to submit responses for the CrowdFiber campaign in August! Our campaign participation numbers are quickly rising, and Northampton County has already reached its goal! Now it's your turn Bertie, Gates, Halifax and Hertford. Your input is crucial to helping formulate the RoanokeConnect plans for moving forward. We'll also continue taking additional input from Northampton, so your voices will still be heard.

Let’s keep this going!

We Need Your Help!

6:26pm March 24, 2016

We need your help to determine if we can expand Roanoke Connect to bring broadband services to homes and businesses in our region. 

In a world of video streaming, telecommuting, video conferencing, and online education, connectivity is not a luxury, it’s a necessity. Unfortunately, many homeowners and businesses in our region do not have access to reliable internet service. The absence of high-speed internet denies our member-owners and others in the region access to all the amenities the World Wide Web has to offer.  It also discourages businesses from investing in our communities which results in missed job opportunities.

Is it cost effective to expand Roanoke Connect to a fiber-to-the-home or extended broadband offering to your homes and businesses?  We are not sure. 

By answering a few of our questions we will know if Roanoke Electric Cooperative should explore this option. Please take the following survey and let us know what you think!

I will be glad when internet is in my area. All of us in my neighborhood can't wait for it to be in our area. Thanks for finally getting it coming our way. Children in our area need the broadband . Will give them something to look forward to.

I would like to know since i have purchased a wifi thermostat 2 years ago on my own , shouldn't I receive the same benefit as others who get it from the co-op? I also replaced my water heater with a energy saving unit compatible with wifi, so what if any are my benefits from the co-op?

Broadband fiber in rural NC is a game changer! Opens up all kinds of possibilities for small businesses and in homes. I'm sure my grandfather in Como, NC felt a similar surge of enthusiasm when electricity came out to his farm in 1947 from this very same Cooperative. I applaud REC for their forward thinking and energy in getting this initiative done.

Any updates on this? The last update came when only 1 of 5 counties had met the goal but now we are at 4 of 5 and have not gotten any updates. Can we look forward to an update soon?

I too, never saw a slip in my bill regarding this.A friend of mine told me about it last week.I am hopeful that this will change the internet situation I have on my road.Guess I'll have to go door to door and let my neighbors know about it.We need to get this done!

It's great to see steps toward expanding broadband in our rual area. Demand will explode from the generation becoming young adults seeking vitality in Eastern North Carolina. There's no doubt in my mind of the need. Keep going, you've got my support.

Thank you for considering broadband in Bertie County. Unfortunately, many of my neighbors don't have internet to take the survey. I doubt they even know about it. This does not mean these Members don't want internet, simply that they don't want tied to a satellite contract. Without access to internet, they can't take your survey. A letter with a paper response would be a more effective way to reach people without internet in rural parts of your area.


Roanoke Connect - Wilbur Daniels

I also agree with Terry and john. I read the slip but could not connect to roanoke.crowd fiber.com. A customer service rep. at the co-op advised me to go through the co-op website and click on Roanoke connect. Everyone needs to know how to access the survey.


Roanoke Connect - Terry Hairston

I agree with John L. I never saw the slip, just happened across it and now I am sharing with friends and neighbors. I actually had to complete this at work, because the connection at my house was not able to stay connected long enough to complete the survey.


Roanoke Connect - John L

12:59pm June 11, 2016

You will need to do more than insert a slip of paper in with our bills about this campaign as many probably didn't read it. I would suggest a separate mailing explaining this program, making sure everyone knows it is a possibility we can make happen. Please consider this ! Thanks
