Richard Pedersen first founded Cybernet1 and Hamilton Computer Service in 1996 the services they offered were a reflection of the times. Today’s children will never know the struggle of dial-up internet. They also provided email, website design/hosting, and computer repair. Eventually, Richard started making internet available through the use of towers and became a Wireless Internet Provider.
Jason and Tashara Pond purchased the company in January of 2018 bringing new life, and vigor under the umbrella of the parent company Grizzly Broadband LLC. By cultivating core values, empowering the old guard, expanding the ranks with new team members and reviewing and repairing old issues; Cybernet1 and Hamilton Computer Service is better able to continue its mission to bring excellent customer service via best in class technology to the valley. Cybernet1 is also working to uplift the community through its charitable donations to organizations like Relay for Life, the Darby, Corvallis and Hamilton Fire Stations, Ravalli Search and Rescue, the Farmer’s Market and various churches.
The next phase in the companies evolution is to bring fiber-optic cable to the valley. We’ve already met early success by installing fiber in subdivisions with plans to expand its customer base to larger clients whose need for internet will allow us and the Valley to flourish. Our great goal is to have fiber running up and down Highway 93 and branching outward to homes, schools, business, and local governments. Our Mission is to “Provide the Highest Quality and Most Reliable Internet Service using Best in Class Technology combined with Exceptional Customer Service.”
