Monahans residents and businesses can still sign up for high-speed internet! For the past several years, the Monahans Chamber of Commerce has been working towards bringing top tier high-speed internet to the city.

Teresa Burnett — Executive Director of the Monahans Chamber of Commerce — created the Monahans Broadband Project. The mapping of the broadband service area covering the east side of town is now complete. Phase 2 is in progress, and Hosted America will provide high-speed internet service throughout the city. The new internet service will be more reliable and affordable for Monahans residents and businesses.
