A special thank you to Pat Harris who has
been living connected with MVT for 71 years! Let's take a quick trip down
memory lane from Pat Harris...
Pat Harris came to Moapa Valley in 1945 from Las Vegas. Pat and her husband
moved as they saw an opportunity to open a restaurant to cater to those
fishing on Lake Mead. They opened their restaurant, in a now torn down
building, just south of Ace Hardware on Overton's Main St. and ended up
getting out of the restaurant business when Overton got crowded with five
local restaurants. They sold their building to Al Biederman, who opened a
fish and tackle store. The Harris family stayed in Moapa Valley because of
the good schools.
Upon arriving in the valley the Harris family got connected with a phone
line from Moapa Valley Telephone and have had service with MVT ever since.
Pat recalls the time when you answered your phone based upon the number of
rings -- wow, how technology has changed since then, right? She has had the
same number since 1945 and loves that her family members can still remember
her number even when they lose their phone and all of their contacts. MVT
thanks Pat for sharing her story and for being a loyal customer.

Happy 2017 From Your Local MVT Team
A new year always
brings time for reflection. Here at MVT 2016 brought some major milestones we
want to share with our valued customers:
- MVT became the only provider in the area with
redundant fiber routes out of the valley this creates the most reliable
network possible. If a fiber is cut the network will reroute to opposite
direction so that the Internet connection through MVT will never be
lost. Fiber not only delivers the most reliable connection, but also
creates a solid network for the best Wi-Fi coverage. Stop by and visit
with our friendly customer service team to learn more about our fiber
- With continued fiber build-out MVT also launched a
300 Mbps Internet plan. The majority of homes around the US only have
access to 10 Mbps, so this is 30 times faster than most homes have
access to. With MVT s new 300 Mbps you can connect every device in your
house and never experience a buffer symbol again.
- We continue to improve our network and plan
offerings, which drives more customers and speed upgrades. Thank you to
all of our customers for choosing MVT and helping a local business
You can expect more from MVT in 2017 and Brad Lyon, president
at MVT, mentioned, MVT and Moapa Valley have been a big part of my family for
four generations. With MVT's fiber network, I believe that we are in a unique
position to deliver the best possible network. There is no technology today
or on the horizon that can compete with the speeds and reliability of fiber.
I also believe that we have the most dedicated employees. Earlier this year,
we had some pretty significant Internet problems; however, we had multiple
employees who spent about 36 hours straight working to get the network back
up. You won't see this dedication from our out-of-town competitors. We also
care about delivering the promised speeds all of the time and every time. We
closely monitor our usage and ensure our customers have the best experience.
We are committed to our network, our customers, and thank every customer for
being committed to us. Cheers to 2016 and to the coming year!
