Sky-Tek Now Serving Cherokee & Clay Counties

Service expanding rapidly to cover territories with limited or no access to the Internet

Murphy, NC – The Internet service availability in Far Western North Carolina has become a problem of nearly epidemic proportions. As the rest of the world continues to use the web as an integral part of daily life, residents of Murphy,NC have been suffering for years with spotty and unreliable High-speed Internet coverage. Thousands of residents are still unable to receive broadband connections in their home. “The people of Cherokee County have waited far too long for reliable broadband Internet service,” said Dean Hensley, CEO of Sky-Tek Communications. For the past 3 months Dean and his team have been hard at work building the infrastructure to serve Cherokee County with High Speed Internet coverage.

Sky-Tek uses a very simple but sophisticated approach to expand Internet coverage in the county. By using strategically placed communications towers fed with a strong fiber Internet connection, Sky-Tek can effectively cover hundreds of square miles by repeating the signal. The signal can then be transmitted to homes using high tech radio receivers. “The speed you can expect from our internet service is right on par with that of normal fiber providers,” Hensley explained.

Areas already receiving service include Downtown Murphy, Martins Creek, Brasstown, & Hiwassee Dam. The coverage will continue to expand every day as more communication towers are added. “It’s understood that areas with strong broadband connections are more desirable for people to move to and have stronger economies; we feel that our Internet Service will be a gigantic leap forward for the local economy and housing market in Cherokee County,” concluded Hensley. From the overwhelming response that Sky-Tek has already received it would appear that Hensley is correct.

Those that are interested in getting connected with Sky-Tek Communications Internet service are encouraged to call 828.835.2825, drop by their office in Downtown Murphy at 31 N. Church St, or Sign Up online at sky-tekcommunications. com.
