A Northeast Georgia company may soon challenge Windstream as an alternative Internet service provider in Jefferson. Paladin Wireless, based in Royston, is currently doing a “feasibility study” to determine whether it will provide Internet service in the area.

Paladin is asking local residents to complete a survey to help them gauge the interest and determine the needed bandwidth for the area. The survey is available online at paladinwireless.com/index.php/get-started/Jefferson-interest-survey.

Residents throughout the county claim they receive insufficient service from Windstream. A Facebook group for “Jefferson/Jackson County Windstream Problems” has over 1,600 members with residents commenting on slow Internet speeds and poor service.
