• Dear Wireless customers, For those who use our wireless Internet service, SEMO.net is having to end our wireless internet service as of the middle of July. We are very sorry but the wireless service has come to a point where it is costing more to provide than it is generating. We wanted to give you as much time as possible to find a new solution.

To help us avoid any confusion with other customers who use other services, please make sure that when talking about this you always make reference to our "wireless" service that is shutting down.
