Our company was started because we saw that some communities were being under-served by their current internet service providers - not just by their speeds, but also by their service.
We believe that everyone deserves access to fast, reliable internet services with the best service and support possible.

Fiber compared to other types of internet connections
There are different ways for you to connect your home to the internet. Fiber internet is the best technology.
DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) service allows you to connect to the internet using your existing phone line. Its biggest advantage is that it is widely available thanks to the government subsidies that pushed the construction of phone lines in the late 1900's.
The biggest downside to DSL service is that it is typically a lot slower than other broadband technologies. Available speeds depend on your home's distance from the cabinet that services the neighborhood. Unfortunately, DSL has reached its limit in terms of the speed that it can deliver. It is regarded as a 'legacy technology' that is no longer deployed in new construction. In fact, Verizon and AT&T have been discontinuing DSL service across their service areas and there is strong evidence that CenturyLink is working on doing the same.
Fixed Wireless Internet
Fixed wireless internet (not to be confused with satellite internet) utilizes a dish on the outside of the home to connect to a nearby tower. Because of its coverage, it often makes high speed internet available in rural areas that lack wired options.
Fixed wireless internet comes with its own drawbacks, though. Slower speeds, higher monthly costs, and lower reliability during weather events typically make it less attractive compared to other options like cable or fiber.

Satellite internet utilizes a dish on the outside of the home to connect to a satellite tens of thousands of miles above the earth. Its biggest advantage is that it is available everywhere.
Satellite internet suffers from high latency- typically hundreds of times higher than other connection types- that make it feel slow and laggy. It also can be less reliable during weather events. Data caps and higher prices limit satellite internet's appeal to rural areas that don't have other connectivity options.
Fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) is commonly referred to as the gold standard of internet connections. It has earned the title because of its ability to offer much faster speeds at much longer distances.
In addition to speed and reliability, fiber is future-proof for as long as we can tell. Even if typical broadband speeds become 1000 times faster in 20 years, a single existing fiber-optic connection can still support it.
Frequently asked questions
What is fiber?
What equipment will I need?
You won't need any of your own network equipment because we include your wireless router in your service plan.
What equipment do you provide?
All residential internet plans include an ONT (optical network terminal) and a wireless router.
Can I use my own router?
Yes, however we include a wireless router with your service free of charge.
How does the installation work?
Your installation appointment will take about four hours, depending on your home. In that appointment, a Thrive Broadband technician will work with you to determine the best location for the fiber jack inside your home as well as the wall box on the outside of your home. Once the locations have been selected, the technician will install the wall box, the fiber jack, and the cabling to connect the two.
What are the actual speeds that I can expect?
You should always be able to use your plan's full speeds- day or night. However, speeds to each device within your home will vary.
How much will it cost?
Do you offer home phone service?
Yes! Details can be found here.
Do you offer TV service?
We do not offer TV service, however many of our customers are saving $100+ per month by switching to streaming TV. A lot of people confuse streaming TV with video library services like Netflix. For the sake of this discussion, streaming TV is TV service that is nearly identical to your satellite TV service except for the fact that it comes over your internet connection.
Can I get service at a secondary structure like a barn or guest house?
We strongly recommend connecting your secondary structure to your house so that the two buildings can share one internet connection. If you don't have existing cabling in place, you can get your buildings connected for an additional cost. Please contact customer support for more information.
When will my service start?
Nno later than December 2021.
