​About Hillcountry networks...


Hillcountry Networks was established in March 2001 to bring community oriented wireless network to the Hillcountry. Our mission is to bring internet connectivity to rural or underserve communities and homes.


We decided in 2001 to bring internet connections to our own home in Dripping Springs, and later expanded that effort into an small community focused operation providing an alternative to other options such as dial up, satellite and other wireless providers. Unlike most startup ventures we have had an positive cash flow since our third month of operation because of the way we chose to do business. Our intent is to grow slow, know our customers, provide the best service possible and continue delivering our connections at prices comparable to big city prices.


We are an LLC, registered in the state of Texas. We have owned property in Hays county since 1968. My mother was once Dripping Springs School Superintendent in the early 70's.


Two principal owners, both UT graduates and have long and solid technical and management backgrounds.
