SANDPOINT - Northern Lights customers will soon be able to subscribe to Pend Oreille Valley Networks Internet services for more competitive rates.
The Sandpoint-based electrical cooperative and the Newport, Wash-based Internet service provider have hooked up to launch the new service to NLI customers. The service becomes available Saturday, the day NLI debuts its redesigned Web page (www.norlight.org).
POVN, which provides a gateway to the Web for individuals, businesses and organizations, will act as the site's host, in addition to providing all technical support. NLI customers wishing to subscribe to the new service will be billed for the Internet service on their monthly power statement.
Any setup fees will be waived for current POVN customers to transfer to Norlight.org Internet service. Users must be able to dial Sandpoint, Priest River or Oldtown toll-free.
For sign-up information, call Northern Lights at 263-5141 or visit its Web site and send an e-mail request.
