RGEC’s Internet Service Being Transferred
When Rio Grande got into the business of providing
internet service way back in the day, the Co-op did
it knowing full well that it would never be a money-
maker. RGEC did it primarily as a service to our members. While
satellite internet does have its drawbacks, for those in remote
areas without access to other means of communications, it was
a very welcomed service.
As technology gradually made its way to rural areas, other inter-
net providers came along, which were able to serve the needs
of our members. Therefore, RGEC’s board made the decision to
extract the Co-op from the internet business with the start of
2018, or sometime thereabout.
Never fear, those who are still subscribers of RioNet, the Co-op
is currently working out a plan, whereby the service could be
transferred to another provider, which has experience in deal-
ing with rural communications.
More details will be forthcoming, so be on the lookout for a
letter from RGEC detailing how and when the transition will
take place. All involved will work hard to make it as seamless as
We thank you for your business, and have sincerely enjoyed
serving your internet needs.
