Free Community Hotspots Now Available

The creation of a top-notch fiber internet network has always been for our members’ benefit. We recognized the importance of providing high quality internet to our communities last year, before we’d ever heard of COVID-19 or social distancing. Access to internet isn’t a luxury anymore, but a necessity for equity in education, health, and economic success. Which is why it is our mission to bring fiber internet to every member and every home regardless of where you live.

How does it work?

  1. Drive to the community hotspot location between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. seven days a week.
  2. Connect to the “RiverNet-Free” network. Access is completely free and there is no password required to connect to the network.
  3. Surf, stream, and browse with 300 Mbps internet speeds to complete schoolwork, work-from-home, connect with a health professional, and much more.

At this time, all locations are operating as parking lot hotspots, but this could change as additional sites are launched.
