What’s Happening at PANGAEA Internet (June 2016)


PANGAEA Internet has partnered with the towns to provide public Wi-Fi for casual and temporary use – not to replace existing residential or business internet service.

PANGAEA Wi-Fi is available in the downtown areas of Chimney Rock Village, Lake Lure, Saluda & Tryon. Coming this summer to Harmon Field and Columbus.

Look for “PANGAEA Public Wi-Fi” under the Wi-Fi settings of your phone, tablet or laptop.
