About Thrive Broadband

Thrive Broadband delivers personalized next-generation network experiences so our customers can quickly connect to the things they want, need, and love.

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. 

We love seeing the looks on our customers' faces when they experience lightning-fast fiber broadband for the first time. There's nothing more satisfying for us, than to see our customers thrive.

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 Internet

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

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 Internet

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?


Fiber optic networks offer the fastest way to transmit data. It connects almost all of the internet backbone today and is the future of home connectivity. DSL and cable transmit data with electrical pulses, but fiber transmits data with light across glass fibers. One of the biggest advantages to fiber optic cable is its future upgradability. While technologies like DSL are falling farther and farther behind connectivity needs, fiber is a long-term solution. In the future when speeds need to be upgraded beyond current capabilities, it involves only a simple home equipment replacement, not a cabling replacement.




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. The ONT connects to the fiber jack that we install inside your home. It includes one ethernet jack to connect to your wireless router as well as a phone jack for optional phone service. The eero Pro 6 wireless router connects to the ONT. It includes one extra ethernet jack for connecting your devices. It supports tri-band WiFi 6 with 4x4 MU-MIMO and mesh networking. Additional eeros can be used as mesh extenders. They can connect to the router either wirelessly or with an ethernet cable (preferred). If you want to use your own wireless router, we will provide just an ONT to convert your fiber connection to an ethernet jack. If you choose our Thrive Max internet plan (2000 Mbps), you will be given a different router.




Can I use my own router?


Yes, however we include a wireless router with your service free of charge. Please note that using your own router may not yeild the most optimal experience. Additionally, you will need to contact your router manufacturer if you encounter any issues with your equipment.




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. After that appointment, our construction crew will install the cable from the nearest handhole by the street to the wall box on the side of your home (you won't need to be home for that part). When your service is ready, we will drop off or mail your wireless router. Setting up your wireless router is easy, and only takes a few minutes! If you would rather have a technician come and set it up for you, you can schedule an appointment.




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. The best way to get the fastest speeds is to use an ethernet cable to connect to your router. Even when using a wired connection, however, some older or less powerful devices may not be able to use the full speed of your internet connection. You will see more speed variance in devices that are connected via WiFi. The speed that each device is capable of using on WiFi depends on the wireless chipset inside. Newer flagship smartphones and tablets, for instance, can typically achieve download and upload speeds of 300-400 Mbps when they are right next to the wireless router. Older devices may only be capable of speeds of 20-40 Mbps. The farther your devices are from the wireless router, the slower the speed will be. Keep in mind that when you perform a speed test on a device you are testing the speeds to the device, and not the speeds to your home. If a device is unable to use the full speed in your plan, that is okay. You have many devices that all share the speed of your plan simultaneously. if you have any questions about the speed capabilities of your devices, ask your technician or call Thrive Broadband customer support. Finally, it is important to note that because of the limitations of gigabit ethernet ports, customers with our Thrive Gigabit or Thrive Max plans should expect to see top speeds of ~900 Mbps unless you have a computer with a multi-gigabit ethernet port.




How much will it cost?


Existing homeowners that order service by January 31, 2021 get a free installation. New homeowners purchasing a home after January 2021 have until April 30, 2021 to order service with a free installation. After the above order deadlines, installation costs $1,000. Monthly service plans can be found here.




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. There are a number of streaming TV providers out there, most of which offer all of the features that you are used to and then some... live local and national channels, sports channels, on-demand, DVR, multiple TV's, HD, etc... Check out: YouTube TV Hulu Live AT&T TV NOW Sling TV Philo FuboTV The only catch to streaming TV is that you need a fast enough internet connnection to support it. That's why those that switch to Thrive Broadband are able to save so much money. For more information about streaming TV service, just give us a call!




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.
