Diane and Phil Kupka are the very first people in Willamina to receive the new fiber optic internet service. They have lived in Willamina for about two years. When they heard about Online NW’s new high-speed internet service, they were thrilled. Diane, who works from home, hasn’t had the best Internet service in the past.

With this new high-speed internet coming into their home, she will now be able to get her work done much more quickly. For anything other than work, such as streaming movies, she says that will be a plus because it won’t be constantly buffering, like her old internet service.

Diane thinks that it will be very beneficial to the development of the local economy. She believes that as companies and other people find out about our high-speed internet they will be checking out the area to bring businesses here or move here. Mr. and Mrs. Kupka are very honored to be the first people in Willamina to receive the new internet service.

Timbertown Media was on-site to capture the first installation on film. Check out their interview with Diane.
