GTA Gold Sponsor!

A non-profit cooperative that provides electricity and internet service to Hood River, the Hood River Valley and Hood River County.

Services

Hood River Coop’s internet service arm is known as CACHE – Communications Access Cooperative Holding Enterprise.  CACHE provides Wireless Broadband and Fiber-Optic connections into the City of Hood River as well as outside of the company’s rural electrical service area. As a nonprofit cooperative, they provide the best service at a lower cost. Owning and operating 100% of their new, state-of-the-art wireless and fiber-optic infrastructure lets CACHE offer one-stop service and support. The company’s small size means they can work individually to address each customer’s internet or Ethernet connectivity needs – from the average homeowner to the largest business with a wide range from 1 megabit to 10 gigabits. Besides wireless, CACHE offers point-to-point Ethernet within the County and even to the Metro area through their direct link with the Bonneville fiber. This fiber link gives CACHE a huge competitive advantage: as part owner of the company (LS Networks) that leases the Bonneville fiber, CACHE can deliver upstream service and has no need to rely on other providers.
