PSKNET closing down today

After more than eight years in business, internet provider Pulaski Networks “PSKnet” is calling it quits today.
Troy Settle, managing member of the company, cited competition from DSL and cable internet services, and the fact PSK’s wireless service “didn’t grow fast enough” as reasons for the closure.
The company’s customers are being transferred to other providers without any interruption of service. Wiredog will take over high-speed clients and Sitestar will take in the dial-up customers.
Wiredog is owned by Professional Networks in Galax. Sitestar is a publicly-held company out of Lynchburg.
Settle plans to continue computer repairs at another location. He said he is in the process of looking for another location to open the repair shop.
Although the PSK office, across from the Pulaski Theatre, will close today, Settle said he will still be around for a few days cleaning up the office.
He noted that dial-up customers need to change the dial-up telephone numbers in their browsers to access the internet. The new numbers and instructions for changing them are available on the website at www.psknet.com.
Customers having questions may call 980-2245.
PSK served nearly 10,000 individual customers throughout Southwest and Western Virginia during its eight and a half years of business.

The company has two full-time and one part-time employee. Settle said it is “possible” they will be retained, but “probably not.”
