Rumbling Bald announces High Speed Internet Project

Bringing fast, reliable Internet to every property.

(LAKE LURE, N.C.) – Rumbling Bald on Lake Lure announces a new two-year high speed internet project that will bring fast, reliable internet to every home on property.

For several years Rumbling Bald has been researching ways to bring high speed internet to its property. Due to the typography and geographic location of Rumbling Bald, this had been a very daunting and challenging task. Administration considered the resources around the area such as Fixed Wireless/Cellular, DSL, Satellites, and Broadband Cable from local providers along with the current limitations from weather and location to identify a plan of action. We recognized now more than ever the importance of a reliable internet connection and how it directly affects work, school, household purchasing, and entertainment alike.

After considering multiple local providers, the contract was awarded to local Asheville company Skyrunner Internet to provide the “gold standard” of high speed fiber optic solution to the property.

The High Speed Internet Project at Rumbling Bald will provide:

  • A fiber optic high speed connection to every POA property within Rumbling Bald.
  • Base service on 200 Mbps download x 200 Mpbs upload with no data caps
  • Fixed monthly billing for three years
  • One-time installation fee per building
  • Presented as an optional service to all POA Members.

This project will take approximately 16-24 months to complete and consist of Four Phases. Work is schedule to begin as soon as April 1st, 2021.

Born Here

It was in the heart of the wooded Blue Ridge Mountains, that the sheer rock-face devoid of greenery gave Bald Mountain its name. But in 1874 the mountain shook and grumbled and groaned with a series of earthquakes, so folks started calling it Rumbling Bald Mountain. Today, the ancient mountain stands watch over the north end of Lake Lure, and gives shelter to our community that thrives at its feet and shares its name. From a solitary boathouse in 1956 to the sprawling mountain community of today. Rumbling Bald on Lake Lure attracts guests from around the world to enjoy the lake, the spa, the golfing, and the sheer beauty of this incredible place.
