3 Rivers is planning to move our existing Central Office equipment (the nerve center of our Internet and telephone network) from our old Fairfield office building into our new building, in preparation for demolition of the old space. This will affect most of our co-op members in the Fairfield exchange. The work will be done in stages beginning May 31, lasting approximately one month, affecting a different set of Fairfield customers on any given day.
The 69th Annual Meeting of 3 Rivers Telephone Cooperative, Inc., on March 21, 2022, can be viewed as a Zoom Webinar. To watch, use this link:

Per the FCC, the Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) will become the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) benefit on December 31, 2021. Households enrolled in the EBB program as of December 31, 2021 will continue to receive their current monthly benefit until March 1, 2022.
Please note that there is a scam email going around claiming to represent 3 Rivers. If you receive an email regarding your 3 Rivers account that asks for personal information such as your user name, full name, passwords, account number, etc., PLEASE IGNORE AND DELETE IT! 3 Rivers will NEVER ask for this type of information via email.
3 Rivers will be using a new underlying provider for 3rivers.net email accounts beginning October 5, 2021. You will notice that your email login page and portal look a little different but your email address and password will remain the same. You will be required to enter your entire email address (ex. john doe @3rivers.net) into the portal along with your password to gain access. Once logged in, you will notice some differences in how your emails are formatted, but all functions, calendars and folders you have already will still be available.
3 Rivers has installed new software to help prevent fraudulent phone calls from reaching you, an issue regularly highlighted by our customers as a significant problem.
Text messaging is an important method for 3 Rivers SmartHub to communicate with you. From billing alerts to service updates, it’s an effective way for us to help keep you informed. Starting June 10, text messages from 3 Rivers SmartHub will come from 8449612523.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has mandated that 10-digit local dialing be adopted for all 3 Rivers customers in the 406 area code (and many others throughout the country) starting July 16, 2022, in order to enable 988 as a new three-digit number to be used nationwide to reach the National Suicide Prevention and Mental Health Crisis Lifeline. Customers must continue to dial 1-800-273-TALK to reach the Lifeline until July 16, 2022.
This means you will need to change the way you dial local calls.
If you're not getting the most out of your 3 Rivers Internet service, it may be your WiFi set up. Having lots of devices using bandwidth-intensive applications can affect performance, but so can other issues.
Do you have old equipment?
Are your router settings correct?
Is your modem/router in the best location?
