AVECC Shares APSC Order Regarding COVID-19 State of Emergency

At Arkansas Valley Electric, we are dedicated to keeping our members as our number one priority.  In March, we suspended service disconnections in hopes of giving our members a little relief during Covid-19. In April, the Arkansas Public Service Commission (ASPC) issued an order regarding utility disconnects statewide. As we continue living in this unprecedented time, we ask our members to review the order regarding the Covid-19 State of Emergency and how that affects utilities.

Fiber Internet is Ideal for Cord-Cutters

“Cutting the cord” is certainly a popular notion right now. However, when it comes to making the decision there can be lots of confusion and pitfalls with the move. It might feel like you are saying goodbye to all your old TV friends, or overwhelmed with a sea of options, or sounds like a way to save money. What to do?

Our goal at Wave Rural Connect is to help you decide whether to stick with traditional subscription TV or jump into the “stream”. We know we have the right service to support you no matter your call.

Making The Connection
The first step to “cutting the cord” is to have the right internet service. The three most important factors in video streaming are speed, latency (signal lag that causes freezing and pixelation), and data limits.

Fiber-optic connections do not have the distance and interference issues of traditional copper lines or satellite feeds.

Fiber-optic connections do not have the distance and interference issues of traditional copper lines or satellite feeds. Fiber is amazingly-fast and has extremely low latency. Last, fiber is the future of hard-line communications and will soon be the standard for the home or office.

Wave Rural Connect internet packages run over our all-fiber network. We offer services up to 1 Gigabit. So we have knocked out two concerns, speed and latency. But what about data limits and overages? Simple. We do not cap data or throttle bandwidth.

100 Mbps Fiber Internet: Great for small families who do general browsing, HD streaming, and light gaming.

1 Gigabit Fiber Internet: Excellent for large families who do heavy or 4k streaming, UHD gaming, and video uploads.
