PANGAEA Internet Testimonials
Tuesday rolled around...time to see patients AND IT WAS WONDERFUL! No consistently dropped internet service, like Windstream! Internet service was so much faster! Wish we would have done this a long time ago! Your customer service was excellent. Looks like you guys are in the same business as us, "making people smile"... because we surely are smiling now with our great service!
Melody Levi, Dr. Steve Edney Orthodontics, Columbus, NC
Extremely pleased with the reliability and speed and also the excellent service during my installation process. So nice to have people do what they say they'll do in the time allocated. Thank you :)
Daniel Brenman, Airspace, The Play Company
We have tried both DSL and Cable internet and were experiencing unacceptable service interruptions. In our business, one day without internet service could potentially cost us customers. Pangaea has been incredibly reliable for the three years we've been a customer!
Kyle Sisk, Divine Communications, Forest City, NC
Pangaea is very important here at the Chamber of Commerce! When we hold Facebook and Twitter classes, participants bring their own laptops, and the speedy connection allows us to function at a high level. visitors can connect and are very impressed with the speed. Everyone in our building is using it, definitely an asset to our patrons.
Janet Sciacca, Carolina Foothills Chamber of Commerce, Tryon, NC
Schneider Physical Therapy is set up with internet based Electronic Medical Records, and an Internet based billing System. Without Pangea's reliable service, and available technical support I would be lost. Pangea has lightning speed fiber optics that keep me in the fast lane, and I am never down.
Margaret Schneider, Phyisical Therapist, Schneider Physical Therapy, Tryon, NC.
Everyone I have delt with at Pangaea has been friendly and offered much assistance with setting up our internet service. The service is reliable and fast. The best we have ever used.
Brian Ross, Owner, Foothills Gun Gallery, Columbus, NC
PANGAEA's fiber network is an asset to ZURV (a Web Marketing Firm) as well as the community. It is a great intensive for any business looking to move to the area (you just can’t find this speed & reliability for the price). We were able to expand our operation, install new servers, route our phones through VOIP, and best of all - become totally independent of ATT. We have had *ZERO down time* since we signed up for PANGAEA's service 8/months ago. The hardest part about switching was getting ATT to cancel our old service. Go ahead, improve your business operations and increase your property value with PANGAEA's fiber internet, you won’t regret it.
Griffe Youngleson, ZURV, LLC., Rutherfordton, NC
Having access to fiber optic internet service is crucial to our business! As a multimedia company, we need to move large amounts of data - thanks to Pangaea, we can do business on a global scale. In addition, Pangaea's customer service is second to none!
Lynn Turner, Turner HD Media, Mill Spring, NC
As a small business competing in a Global economy, we have found PANGAEA to be a true asset for our company. The ability to communicate with our trading partners at the speed of light has truly enhanced our competiveness and efficiencies. We believe PANGAEA to be an asset to small businesses in our county.
Bryan King, President, Lakeside Mills, Inc., Rutherfordton, NC
Fiber has been the best thing I have added to my practice. All our patient records are accessed via the internet so speed is a must. I was never happy with cable or DSL. They always seemed to be too slow and would go down several times a day. No problems with Pangaea fiber. It works great day after day and the cost is about the same.
Dr. Jeffery Viar, Foothills Medical Associates, Columbus, NC
They have been attentive whenever I have called and needed immediate attention.
Gina Durand, Foothills Medical Associates, Columbus, NC
I can't tell you how much I appreciate the service. Again, one of my main concerns as a business owner is keeping costs to a minimum. With you guys, even over the wireless link, we're able to have a crystal clear VOIP connection (two phones here and one at our satellite office in Florida) using an Asterisk PBX. We were able to cut about $100/month in phone bills out being able to do everything that way. So glad we got this up and working! Thanks for all your help!

Rutherford County Schools in partnership with Rutherford County Government and PANGAEA have leased a state-of-the-art fiber optic wide area network (WAN) with a gigabit Ethernet network to and from all 19 schools and 3 administrative sites. This network along with the upstream link from PANGAEA has allowed our teachers and students the ability to reach a wealth of educational resources that before were almost unusable due to lack of bandwidth and network capacity. It also allows the students in Rutherford County Schools to access the many resources and educational opportunities that many other affluent school districts have had in place for several years. Our students now can compete with the students in those areas and be better prepared for higher education and/or the world of work (global economy).
Benny E .Hendrix, CIO/CTO, Rutherford County Schools, Forest City, NC
Wow! Connecting to the fiber optic network has made so much difference. We tried cable and DSL and I really could not tell any difference between the two After connecting to PANGEA, our VOIP has performed flawlessly and the speed is amazing. I can send and receive files without any concern for having to wait. Even at peak times, I experience no difference in speeds. But probably the best thing is the cost savings! My communications costs have been reduced by over 50% and my staff can finally work remotely and be just as effective as they are being in one of our offices. Having this bandwidth is helping me to transform my business!
Brent Washburn, President, Washburn Realty, Inc., Rutherfordton, NC
As a public service agency in Polk County, the Polk County Public Library is proud to be a charter member of PANGAEA, a bold and vibrant fiber optic network. PANGAEA has set the standard in North Carolina for the deployment of high speed, low cost connectivity to the Internet in more rural areas. I foresee PANGAEA as Polk County's window into clean, green economic development of Internet-based businesses and services. The positive impact of this historic community network initiative will be felt and enjoyed by Polk County citizens for years to come. As PANGAEA now reaches out to neighboring Rutherford County and beyond, it will be the stimulus for the future economic growth of the entire region.
Mark E. Pumphrey, Director, Polk County Public Library, Columbus, NC
As I was getting ready to open my new financial planning practice, I was fortunate to have met Stu Davidson. Stu worked with me to formulate a plan to not only bring PANGAEA fiber optic Internet to my business but also to make this service available to all (18) of my rental units in my newly opened strip mall, Dunn's Columbus Commons. Stu Davidson is extremely knowledgeable and is a great asset to your company. Not only did Stu make it completely painless to get PANGAEA service but has also been there each time I had a question or required assistance in getting additional tenants connected. I am very pleased with PANGAEA fiber optic Internet service and Stu Davidson. In the financial planning practice, TIME IS MONEY! Your service is far superior in speed to DSL and more reliable. I look forward to our continued business relationship and would not hesitate in recommending PANGAEA.
James E Smith, Dunn's Financial Review, Inc., Columbus, NC
The Rutherford County government offices are using the PANGAEA fiber network with great success. Our latest speed test results are: Download Speed: 29161 kbps (3645.1 KB/sec transfer rate). Upload Speed: 4157 kbps (519.6 KB/sec transfer rate). These speeds have allowed us to work more efficiently and transfer more data back and forth to the appropriate offices. GIS can now be used throughout both of our complexes in Rutherford and in Spindale. We have experienced little downtime but have had immediate response when downtime has occurred. The difference in cost between PANGAEA’s fiber network compared to a much slower T1 is impressive, and it’s nice to know that every dollar paid to PANGAEA is put right back into making their network better, faster, and more stable.
Rhonda Owens, CIO, IT Director, Rutherford County Government, NC
The Isothermal Planning and Development Commission has been very satisfied with PANGAEA's broadband service. Compared to our previous internet service, we have increased our bandwidth and lowered our monthly cost with no reduction in service reliability. IPDC is pleased to support this locally-controlled community network.
Jim Edwards, Executive Director, Isothermal Planning & Development Commission
Polk County Schools could not effectively educate our students without the network created by PANGAEA. Using the PANGAEA fiber network, students and staff in each school and administrative office use digital communication tools for learning, teaching or completing the business functions of the schools. Polk County Schools is the only organization in the county that has 9 "branch offices". Each of the offices requires access to electronic resources to do their job. The PANGAEA network allows us to communicate like we are all in one location.
David Scherping, Technology Director, Polk County Schools, Columbus, NC
PANGAEA connectivity allows the Polk County Government to share information instantaneously between county departments as well as pool resources. PANGAEA provides reliable Internet Service that is crucial to Government needs, especially for the 911 Services.
Marche Pittman, System Coordinator, Polk County Government, Columbus NC
As a satellite campus, Isothermal Community College Polk Campus depends on fast dependable internet service to operate effectively on a day-to-day basis. If our internet is down, we cannot process student and instructor paperwork, cannot build classes, cannot access the community college Datatel system—basically cannot do our jobs and serve the student we are here to serve. PANGAEA service is extremely fast and reliable. When we have had problems, one phone call gets them addressed quickly and efficiently so we’re back to work with little downtime.
Cindy Ramsey, Director, Isothermal Community College-Polk Campus, Columbus, NC
Mountain 1st Bank has been pleased with the broadband service from PANGEA. This service is considerably more cost effective, fast and reliable than our previous service provided by a large regional cable company. As a Community Bank we are pleased to support a local business that provides much needed service and innovation to our area.
