What makes fiber better

Only fiber has the download and speed you need

All Internet Service Providers tout their “download” speed... but very few ever mention their “upload” speed. This is the speed at which you can send information from your computer or device to the web. ValuNet FIBER is the only local provider that offers upload speeds that are equally as fast as download speeds in all of our plans.  We call this “synchronous” service but you will call it “wonderful”!

If you use apps like FaceTime, Skype or video chat, if you share lots of photos and videos to social media sites, if you play online games, or if you use cloud storage services like Dropbox or Google Drive – upload speed is incredibly important. Any application that uses the cloud needs high upload speed. And the more internet-connected devices you have, the more upload speed you need.

If you're unhappy with your current Internet because it seems slow or lags, even at a fast download speed, it is probably because your upload speed is too low.

To have the best experience online, your download and upload speed should be roughly equal. Take our speed test now – if your upload speed doesn't measure up, call us!

We'll keep up with technology for you.


Future Proof

Fiber networks are forever and don’t need to be replaced once installed if you need more or faster service. ValuNet can upgrade your service and your speed in a matter of seconds without adding equipment or hardware – NOT by replacing the fiber cables to your home or adding cables.

Internet security

Ultra Reliable

Always On. Always Works.


Ultra Reliable

Because fiber optic internet cables are  made of glass, there is no electricity involved. Unlike the copper wiring used for telephone and cable TV, it’s not easily affected by environmental conditions like storms or electrical interference.

Powerful internet

Mega Powerful

Download all you want.

Fiber can easily handle multiple users on multiple devices at the same time.

Fiber direct to your home

Direct to You

Because you don't want to share.


Direct to You

Our fiber connects directly to your door and your connection is all your own. With cable, you're sharing a connection with many other homes in your neighborhood. Having your own dedicated fiber connection means you always get the speed you pay for. It protects you from bottlenecks. With cable internet, speeds can slow down during high-volume times.

Fiber internet is eco-friendly

Clean & Green

Fiber can help save the world.


Clean & Green

Fiber can transmit more data over longer distances and still use less energy than traditional copper cables. This helps reduce carbon dioxide emissions. ValuNet Fiber uses pure light to transmit data to your home so, while you enjoy faster speeds you are also being good to mother earth!



Our customers us. You will too.

“I’ve made the switch from my previous provider to ValuNet Fiber and you couldn’t pay me to go back! Even if they paid me to switch I still wouldn’t give up the excellent service and local people that are always willing to go out of their way to help!”

Stephanie, Emporia Resident

We switched over to ValuNet when cable started charging us extra for using too much data.  I’ve had ValuNet for almost a year now.  The speed you get from fiber optics really does enable you to get more out of your internet.  And with ValuNet, I never have to worry about extra fees for data…
