The Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce is hosting a ribbon cutting at 9 a.m., Friday, August 7, in Memorial Park to welcome SkyLine/SkyBest’s fiber internet service to downtown Blowing Rock businesses.

In March of 2020 SkyLine/SkyBest completed the installation of fiber internet facilities along Main Street in Blowing Rock. Downtown businesses and the surrounding area are now taking advantage of the new service.

SkyLine/SkyBest can offer up to 1 Gigabit upload and download internet service to fiber customers.

The SkyLine/SkyBest business team looks forward to meeting Blowing Rock business owners at the ribbon cutting on Friday, August 7. The first 25 attendees at the ribbon cutting will receive a ‘token’ for a free treat at Kilwins Ice Cream, courtesy of SkyLine/SkyBest.

Future plans include the expansion of fiber connectivity to residential areas in Blowing Rock. Residents interested in acquiring services through SkyBest are encouraged to provide their information by visiting
