WCEC will begin decommissioning the older network equipment on our towers at the end of September. You must have the new equipment to connect to Wirehand Wireless once this is complete.

Wharton County Electric Cooperative began offering Wirehand Wireless Internet service in 2006 to meet the need for broadband service in rural areas. The Wirehand network currently serves over 600 users in coverage areas located within 5-10 miles of our network towers. A site inspection is required before new installation can take place. WCEC also offers Exede Satellite Internet for those users who are outside the Wirehand coverage areas.
