Willamette Valley Fiber offers high-speed fiber optic internet. This means that our service does not use a modem. A piece of equipment called an ONT (Optical Network Terminal) is installed at your home, though you do not pay any rental fees for this piece of equipment. If you intend on using WiFi services, you will need a wireless router. This is a device you can purchase from another party, or rent from us. Our routers are $8.99 per month, and incur a one time installation fee of $29.99.

What are the partial monthly charges on my bill?
Partial monthly charges reflect charges from a different bill cycle. For example, if you started your service December 25th; the bill you receive that is due January 20th will reflect charges from December 25th to the 31st in addition to the normal monthly charges for the month of January. Credits applied to your account will also reflect as partial monthly charges.
Wireless connection keeps dropping or is too slow?
Are you frequently losing your wireless signal? Are you experiencing slow speeds? This issue can be a result of a number of things; the age of the router, the amount of devices connected, and the position of the router in the home can all affect connection and speed. Try a speed test, by going to speedtest.net. Start by removing the router and connecting directly from the internet outlet to a computer or laptop. If there is no service interruption and/or your speed increased by doing this while directly connected, the router might have a problem. If it is your own purchased router we recommend that you contact the router manufacturer for troubleshooting suggestions specific to their equipment. If you tried a direct hardwired connection (from the Internet outlet directly to the computer with no router in between) and you have no connection or are still experiencing slow speeds, please contact our office. A technician will need to be dispatched for further assistance.
