PEAK Internet Acquires EPUD Internet Services EPUD.NET and EFN.ORG

CORVALLIS, OREGON, April 12, 2017 – PEAK Internet, LLC has acquired EPUD Internet Services (EPUD.NET) and Eugene Free Net (EFN.ORG), a Eugene, Oregon-based internet service provider (ISP). PEAK Internet and Emerald PUD Internet Services have shared a close relationship for many years and will combine their product offerings and services to bring the best of each to the industry.

Emerald PUD says “While we have enjoyed offering internet services to our customers, we have determined that being an internet service provider (ISP) doesn’t fit in with our core mission as a public power utility. Emerald’s focus has always been and will continue to be in delivering safe, reliable power to customers within our District, and we believe PEAK Internet is better suited to serve your internet needs. Together, we have partnered to ensure you, our valued customers, continue to receive the same quality of service you’ve come to expect. This is our commitment to you.”

Rick Petersen, President and CEO of PEAK Internet, said, “We are excited about the opportunity to welcome the great customers of EPUD and EFN to our ISP family.” We know we will have to work hard to earn their trust, but we’re confident that all of the customers will see only positive changes in their services. This is a natural fit for PEAK given our successful track record of ISP acquisitions along with our electric utility affiliations.
