What is Fiber?

Fiber optic is a state-of-the-art technology that uses bundles of glass threads to transmit information as light signals.  A fiber optic network has the ability to carry much more information than traditional copper wire networks.

In copper networks, information is passed along as electrical signals, which can cause interference within the bundle of wiring.  The light signals in a fiber do not interfere with other fibers in that bundle allowing for clearer phone conversations, faster internet connections, and sharper TV reception.  Because fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) provides the fastest internet available, you can transfer large packets of information quickly and with ease.

Overbuilding a copper network with a state of the art fiber optic network takes time and planning.  Wilkes Communications is committed to ensuring that you have connections to the things that matter most.  With speeds of up to 1 Gig available on an all FTTH network, you have access to a very impressive and celebrated digital life.

Fiber internet service has a long list of benefits for you and your home.

  • Reliable, high-quality connection for improved productivity
  • Unlimited Internet usage (no data caps!)
  • A future proof home for technology with little to no maintenance
  • Less vulnerability to glitches or interference
  • Clearer phone conversations, TV signals
  • Secure voice and data transmissions
  • Faster connection speeds for multiple devices at once

Service you can depend on—like a neighbor.

We’re not just proud to deliver the fastest internet available to your area, we’re proud to be your neighbor. Because we live and work where you do, you can count on the kind of exceptional customer service we’d want—personal, responsive, and reliable!

2. You’ll receive a $50 bill credit for every new sign up PLUS your friends will receive one too.  It’s a win-win!

Now, spread the word!  It’s really that easy.

Refer a Friend program is available to RiverStreet Networks customers, excluding any in Non-Pay status. Active internet customers may refer unlimited friends and receive a $25 bill credit for each successful referral that results in the sale of internet service. To receive the credit, the referee (new customer) must mention the referral program and the referring active customer’s name. The $25 bill credit(s) will appear on both customer’s invoices within 60 days of successful service activation. This program has no cash value and may be credited only against the purchase of future services. This offer may expire at any time without further notice. The referee is still eligible for any other current promotions.
