Local Rapid City Man Wins Free Bluepeak Internet Service for a Year

Package valued at $1,000 of fast, reliable fiber internet.

(RAPID CITY, S.D) – Oct. 12, 2022Eric Peltier’s range of emotions when he found out he won Bluepeak’s Streamin’ Summer Sweepstakes ran the full gamut.

“Paranoia and skepticism and then acceptance and excitement,” he laughed. “I never win anything so I was really excited and still am!”

When reality set in for the Rapid City, S.D., resident, he walked away with 12 months of free one gigabit-per-second (Gbps) service from Bluepeak. A fiber internet package valued at $1,000. Peltier plans to take full advantage of it. Earlier this year he specifically moved from Pine Ridge Indian Reservation to Rapid City just for Bluepeak internet.

Peltier has plans to become an internet content creator, but that requires internet that wasn’t available on the reservation. So he and his cousin packed up and headed north.

“When I moved back I said, ‘Yeah, I’m getting Bluepeak. I’m not messing around with Midco,’” Peltier recalled. “I went straight to Bluepeak. No question. Just immediate.”

In fact, testing Bluepeak’s internet service was the web creator’s top priority when he finally got into his apartment.

“My cousin and I jumped right into streaming,” he said. “Boxes not even unpacked, we set up the PC and cranked out a stream.”

Peltier streams himself playing Apex Legends – an online battle royale game – through Twitch, a live streaming service catering to esports. The immersive game and live stream requires a lot of download and upload speed. Fortunately, Bluepeak is the best “game” in town with fast, reliable and affordable internet.

Bluepeak features all-in, transparent pricing, where the price on the website is the price on the bill, with download speeds up to one gigabit-per-second (Gbps). With Bluepeak, local residences and businesses get faster speed, equal upload and download speeds, and eero Secure, which provides whole-home WiFi and protects devices from online threats, ads and allows for customized content filtering.

Eric has seen that advantage for himself, describing Bluepeak’s service as “fantastic.”

“I would 100 percent recommend Bluepeak to people who talk about internet service,” he said.
