Broadband internet access is coming to the Caputa area!

Golden West's fiber-optic network connection will allow you to perform everyday activities online more easily for education, business, healthcare, entertainment, and more.

CHR Solutions, a contractor working for Golden West, will begin construction in the area in early April 2024. For your safety, every worker has a Golden West name badge. Those at eligible addresses who pre-order service should have a broadband connection by fall 2024.

At that time the following speeds will be available – with no data limits and no contracts – as follows:

  • up to 250 Mbps – $64.95/month
  • up to 500 Mbps – $84.95/month
  • up to 1 Gbps (1 Gig) – $104.95/month

Golden West also offers Wi-Fi plans to serve all of your many wireless devices.

  • Ultimate Wi-Fi – $11.00/month. This plan offers exceptional security protection and access control, along with a router lease and Golden West Wi-Fi technical support.
  • Managed Wi-Fi – $6.00/month. This plan includes a router lease and Golden West Wi-Fi technical support.

Don't miss this opportunity!

Sign up by May 31 while work is in progress to get free installation and avoid construction charges that may apply later. An advanced payment of $60.00 will be collected later before service is activated.
