Emergency Phone Numbers
The offices of goBEC Fiber Network are closed on Holidays.
As always we will have crews on standby if an emergency should arise. If your service does go off, first check all your breakers. Then contact your neighbors to determine if they also are out of service. If you know of any reason for the outage, please report the location of the problem.
Many outages can be quickly repaired, but can sometimes take hours to find. Reporting these problems will save our crews valuable time. Also it is important to call in if you do have an outage. This will let us know the extent of the problem so crews can be dispatched more efficiently.

What are fiber optics?
Fiber Optics are long, thin strands of glass that are used to transmit light signals over long distances. Learn more about fiber optics as they relate to high speed internet!
What is the difference between fiber optic cables and copper wires?
Copper wires have the ability to carry high bandwidths but only for a few hundred yards without narrowing bandwidth and degradation. Fiber optic cables use light to carry high bandwidth signals over long distances and are more weather proof and reliable than copper that has a tendency to break down after a period of time.
Why should I consider fiber optics for my business?
Fiber optic internet is faster, more reliable, more secure and possesses high bandwidth. Check out a few more of the many advantages of switching to fiber.
Does having fiber optic internet really add value to my home?
Yes! In fact, a recent study by RVA & Associates, a consulting firm in Tulsa, Oklahoma, surveyed home buyers and developers. They discovered that fiber-to-the-home adds about $5,000 to the purchase price of a home.
