WI-FI is no longer an optional "EXTRA" for most homes and businesses. It has become a critical component of the connectivity. Just think about how many devices you are using in your home or business. Stop fighting with your wireless network and battling device connectivity. There are so many things that can interfere with your signal.

Want Faster Internet Speeds? Then you need fiber!

While many communications providers brag about utilizing "fiber" in their networks, unless they provide it all the way to the home, they do not compare. Randolph Communications is providing High Speed fiber optics all the way to your home with Fiber Connect. Fiber to the home (FTTH), or Randolph Fiber, is the delivery of a communications signal over fiber optics to a home or business. This fiber will replace the existing copper infrastructure such as telephone wires and coax cable. Fiber to the home is a method of providing higher bandwidth to consumers and businesses, which enables more robust video, Internet and voice services.

Connecting homes directly to fiber optic cable enables large improvements in the bandwidth that can be provided to consumers. Current fiber optic technology can provide two-way transmission speeds of up to 1000 megabits per second. Further, as cable router and internet providers are struggling to squeeze increments of higher bandwidth out of their technologies, ongoing improvements in fiber optic equipment are constantly increasing available bandwidth without having to change the fiber. That’s why fiber networks are said to be “future proof.”

Benefits

  • Faster Internet Speeds
  • Ability to Stream TV With No Buffering
  • Enhanced Voice Services
  • Secure & Reliable Connection
  • Increased Property Value

Our Fiber Story:

Randolph Communications Cooperative territory spans over seven counties, which means we serve 534.46 square miles of rural communities. Our goal has always been and continues to be providing the best customer service to our customers with the most advanced technology.

Some companies choose not to provide Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) to their customers. However, that is not the case at Randolph Communications. Your Cooperative believes in you having the best. Did you know that 16,007 addresses already have fiber by them at this time? We still have a ways to go so your patience is important.

To summarize our fiber plan, your Cooperative began constructing transport fiber in 1998. In 2011, we put the plow in high gear to really ramp up our FTTH efforts. To date, we have invested over $69 Million in our fiber plant. Will it take time to get to everyone? Yes. How soon will the Coop be 100% fiber fed? We are 94% complete. These remaining areas are completed using the following criteria: service issues, distance from a wire center (which impacts what speed you can get over copper) and if customers are willing to pay for additional advanced services. We know you need high-speed internet for your jobs, for your children’s school work, for medical needs, or even for entertainment purposes.

We are working very hard and are committed to having fiber throughout our territory. This is why our non-member areas like Spies, Chatham County, Sanford, Silk Hope and El Dorado are so important. The monthly revenues that come in from non-members support the fiber build within our Cooperative footprint. We would love to have 20 construction crews and be finished in two years, but that is not feasible.

Rural America deserves the same technological services that are available in metropolitan areas. Rural America cannot be left behind and your Coop is doing everything we can to bridge the digital divide in our areas.

Email Scams

Email provides us a convenient and powerful communications tool. Unfortunately, it also provides scammers and other malicious individuals an easy means for luring potential victims. The scams they attempt run from bogus business opportunities to phishing schemes using a combination of email and bogus web sites to trick victims into divulging sensitive information. To protect yourself from these scams, you should understand what they are, what they look like, how they work, and what you can do to avoid them.

Here are some recent scams:

  • If you have received an email that looks like it comes from us and states "Hello User,Our record indicates that you recently made a request to shut down your email. And this request will be processed shortly. If this request was made accidentally and you have no knowledge of it, you are advised to cancel the request now by clicking Stop Account Shutdown." This is a SCAM.
  • If you have received an email that looks like it comes from us and states "Your email account has almost exceeded its limit and that they may not be able to send or receive messages at any time from now on. It is asking them to “click” on the link and renew their account." This is a SCAM.
  • Police Warn of New 'Line-Trapping Technology' Being Used to Scam People Over the Phone: A new piece of sophisticated technology is being used by fraudsters to scam unsuspecting people over the phone. Police said a woman in the York Region received a call earlier this month and was told by the scammers she had been a victim of identity theft. Police said the woman was directed to call police and confirm the information. The victim called authorities and believed she had spoken to an officer. Through the investigation it was revealed that the suspects used new line-trapping technology to remain connected to her phone line when she tried to call police. The technology used by the scammers reconnected her phone line to them instead of the authorities. Police said the woman lost a quantity of cash and the suspects obtained her personal information. Police are reminding citizens to be cautious with any calls or e-mails seeking personal information. "If a situation feels suspicious, trust your instincts," police said in a news release on Thursday. "If you wish to confirm a call you receive do so on a delayed time line. Evidence suggests that the line-trapping technology being utilized has a time limit of several minutes." Police said to call on another line if you are suspicious of being hacked.
  • Phone Scam claiming to be paypal: If you receive a call from 786-408-1679 stating they are from paypal, it is a scam.
  • COVID-19 Scams: Criminals are opportunists. They will often capitalize on major news events to create scams to take advantage of unsuspecting consumers. The ongoing coronavirus pandemic is a perfect example. The fear evoked by the coronavirus creates the perfect opportunity for criminals to prey upon individuals with phishing, social engineering scams and more.
  • Phone scams: If you receive a call from 1-877-376-3470 claiming to be Amazon and asking you to log into your computer so they could issue them a refund on a package they could not ship.

Affordable Connectivity Program

Randolph Communications has been notified by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that funding for the program is expected to run out by the end of April 2024, meaning April bills may be the last ACP credit issued.

As a result, the FCC began taking steps to wind down the program. During the wind down process, the FCC established February 7, 2024, as the last day that new ACP enrollments will stop. This includes any paperwork that must be submitted to our company to be enrolled.

If you are already enrolled in ACP and receiving the monthly internet discount before February 8, 2024, you will continue to receive your ACP benefit until ACP funds run out. After ACP ends, the $30 credit you are receiving towards your internet service will be removed and you will be responsible for any remaining charges on your internet service.

You can contact our Customer Care at 336-879-5684 if you have any questions, or you can reach out to the ACP Support Center at 877-384-2575, or visit https://www.fcc.gov/acp and https://affordableconnectivity.gov/ for more information.

This federal program provides a discount of up to $30 on the internet bills for households that meet certain income eligibility requirements.

A household is eligible for the Affordable Connectivity Program if one member of the household:

  • Has an income that is at or below 200% of the federal poverty guidelines;
  • Participates in certain assistance programs, such as SNAP, Medicaid, Federal Public Housing Assistance, SSI, WIC, or Lifeline;
  • Receives benefits under the free and reduced-price school lunch program or the school breakfast program, including through the USDA Community Eligibility Provision, or did so in the 2019-2020 school year, 2020-2021, or 2021-2022;
  • Received a Federal Pell Grant during the current award year;
  • Meets the eligibility criteria for a participating provider's existing low-income program.

There is a limit of one benefit per household per month.
