Keeping Communities Connected

During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for access to reliable broadband service became more evident than ever.  In an effort to keep everyone connected, Pineland Telephone launched free Wi-Fi service at thirty-one of its office locations, available to all members of the public.   Although there has been a return to pre-COVID practices, the need for broadband access remains.  Connecting for work, completing schoolwork, communicating on a telehealth visit, or staying in touch with family and friends, all requires broadband.  Because of this, Pineland continues to broadcast it’s free Wi-Fi service.  If you need to connect, simply pull up to one of our following locations, and select the network “Connect2PinelandFREE”. 

In addition to our office locations, Pineland broadcasts Wi-Fi in three community parks – Metter, Louisville, and Swainsboro.  At these locations look for the network “Pineland In The Park”. 

As part of the State of Georgia’s Broadband Program, you can also find a list of free public Wi-Fi access points throughout the entire state by visiting
