September 30, 2020

MEDFORD, OR – Communications network connectivity is critical to first responders and utility crews on the frontlines battling the wildfires across Oregon and the western United States. The internet is also a vital function for those companies who suffered staggering losses as they endeavor to remain viable and start rebuilding.

To help businesses in two southern Oregon towns where some of the state’s worst destruction due to the wildfires occurred, Hunter Communications (Hunter), a provider of fiber-optic communications services in southern Oregon and northern California, is offering 3-months of FREE fiber broadband internet to businesses in Phoenix and Talent, Oregon.

“Our customers and communities are part of our families. We support each other to get through these devastating times,” said Michael Wynschenk, CEO of Hunter Communications. “I also want to thank our Hunter Heroes – our selfless crews and employees who have worked practically nonstop on the front lines, restoring and replacing 2,000 strand miles of fiber to keep first responders and the communities connected.”

David M Lyman, Executive Director of Lyman Communications, providing remote communications services worldwide:

“I just want to thank you again for the outstanding support and the rapid response Hunter Fiber has provided to us for the wildfire support in Oregon, not only this year, but for previous years as well.

Our company, Lyman Communications, has been providing communication services for the U.S. Forest Service for over 35 years, with emphasis on providing high speed internet.  In those 35 years, I have never found a company that has been more helpful in every aspect of rapid response, providing information and high-speed internet, than Hunter. 

It is a very good feeling to know that I can call on Hunter every time we have a fire incident and to know that Hunter will respond immediately. Hunter is always most willing to either provide information on who I need to speak with, if it is out of Hunter territory, or advise me as to what locations have Hunter fiber so I can connect our microwave radio equipment to enable transmission from that fiber connection directly to fire camp. This has saved thousands of dollars for the U.S. Forest Service and has provided a valuable service to the fire fighters themselves.  Because of the internet speeds that Hunter is able to provide, we not only deliver internet, but telephone lines and cellular service where previously none existed.

I cannot thank you enough for what you do.”
