Testimonials

“With my extremely limited resources, MAIN is, even to this day, STILL the only means I have of accessing the Internet. I have no knowledge of ANY other Internet Service Provider in our area that is able, or even willing for that matter, to offer such gracious assistance to those of us out here that are less fortunate.”

“I bought my computer in 2000 and MAIN has been my ISP from that time; I love the price, I love the wonderful response I get from the volunteers when I have had any issues, I love the links to informative/realistic sites, I love the fact MAIN is such a support for western NC;”

“Just wanted to say thanks for making it easy for those of us who are not financially well-off to be able to use the internet at such low costs. This has opened new worlds for me.”
