Rooted In Community Since 1997
Founded in 1997 as New Era Technology by Don Davis and a group of like-minded colleagues, we were among some of the first Internet service providers to offer fixed wireless technology. Beginning with larger institutions like Buncombe County Schools and Omni Grove Park Inn, New Era’s successes led Public Interest Projects, an Asheville-based community growth team led by Julian Price and Pat Whalen, to invest in the start-up.
After rebranding as Skyrunner Internet and expanding coverage toward South Carolina and Tennessee, Public Interest Projects sold the company in 2000. The dot-com bubble burst soon after creating the perfect opportunity for Don Davis to buy back Skyrunner Internet and continue pioneering high-speed Internet for the surrounding community. Over the last twenty years, we have merged with and/or acquired a handful of other independent ISPs, including 3db Wireless, AND Wireless, Mountain Internet, and Mountain Area Information Network (MAIN).
Skyrunner Internet now provides service for 7,000 home and business clients throughout Western North Carolina and Upstate South Carolina. We are a team of 24 tight-knit employees, head-quartered in Asheville. We are provide to offer innovative and flexible Internet services to the community we care so much about.
Strong Values and Company Culture
If you ask any Skyrunner customer what makes them happy to work with Skyrunner, they will likely mention the friendly and supportive staff in the office and in the field. Don Davis and team have created a work culture that supports openness, high involvement, and dream chasing. We believe that a strong, positive, and evolving company culture cradles a high functioning support staff and effective solutions for all.
Skyrunner meets as a full team twice a year to review finances and discuss the future of our company. We gather input from all employees and grow as a group toward a common goal.
Creating a strong team helps us keep a happy and growing customer base. We are deeply grateful for the business of our neighbors! Without our customers, we wouldn’t get the chance to do what we love.
