Your Highlands Fiber Network (HFN) home internet connection can be used for more than just accessing the internet. HFN fiber internet has fast, reliable speeds to provide seamless connections, allowing you to work, learn, stream, and play using the new technology of today and tomorrow. Find out how you can make the most of your HFN fiber internet connection to improve your daily life and have a tech-savvier year ahead.

Home Automation
Home automation, also known as smart home automation, is said to make your life easier by allowing you to live your day-to-day life without mundane interruptions or activities. Home automation devices can take care of everyday tasks, like controlling and setting your thermostat, creating a grocery list, and reminding you about upcoming events. There are home automation products on the market today that cater to most, if not all, areas of your home and are designed to offer convenience, including products related to entertainment and communications, personal assistance, lighting, security, and home health.

Telecommuting
Many of us experienced telecommuting last year, continuing into 2021. Working from home in Issaquah Highlands is easy and reliable with plenty of bandwidth to easily share large files and work while other people in your home use the same connection. Using multiple devices is no problem.

Optimize your telecommuting environment by making sure your workspace is set up ergonomically and you have all the tools you need. A selfie light can work wonders to brighten your Zoom meetings.

Learning
Your HFN fiber internet connection gives you fast, symmetrical speeds and plenty of bandwidth to make online learning easy. Online learning is not just for kids; go ahead and take an online class that piques your interest, or brush up on your skills by taking a new course.

Accessing Telemedicine
Highspeed fiber internet connections allow healthcare professionals to evaluate, diagnose, and treat patients using telecommunications technology. See your doctor or visit urgent care from the convenience and comfort of your home. Check with your doctor and insurance for details.

Watching
Stream your favorite TV shows or movies anytime. You can even “cut the cord” with your cable TV provider and use streaming services like Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, Netflix, YouTube, and others. Cutting the cord will save you money, won’t lock you into a contract, and won’t have you pay for channels you don’t watch. Streaming services give you the right combination of convenience, choice, and price.

Playing
Online gaming is a fun way to connect with family and friends while staying home. Create some healthy competition in the new year, or just spend some (virtual) time together. From video games to virtual escape rooms and board games, there is something for everyone. Your HFN connection enables you to play without lagging.

We want you to have the best experience using the HFN network. Do not hesitate to reach out to our customer service team. We are happy to help.
