Building Affordable High-Speed Internet for Our Community
The mission of Eastern Carolina Broadband is to provide high-quality internet service to the unserved and underserved areas of eastern North Carolina at an affordable price. For ECB to be able to do this for the long term we have to make a profit, but the decision was made to keep our plans priced as low as possible. Our pricing model is based on the expectation that local governments and businesses would allow ECB to mount equipment on their towers for little to no rent (of course we would cover all costs associated with installation and maintenance of our equipment). This would allow ECB to pass these savings onto our customers. ECB is offering a residential plan of the American Standard boasting, 25/Mbps down by 3/Mbps up, for $59 per month. Our plans are significantly less than any other providers plan in North Carolina and three Virginia providers at comparable speeds. We appreciate your help in keeping internet costs affordable for as many of our neighbors as possible.
