Hansel Boyd, owner of Electrum Internet and Tech Needles opened his business in December of 2018 and has already made a big impact on the tiny town, providing high speed internet access and computer repair to an area that is vastly underserved.
“A lot of our customers would ask for recommendations for an internet company because they were fed up with their current company. But, we couldn’t offer any,” says Boyd.
“I started thinking maybe I can check and see if something else is slowing your computer, maybe it’s not the internet. But after so many requests about internet, I did my research (providing internet access) and I figured I could just handle Needles. There’s a market here. There’s a need.”
Boyd also said he is planning on providing internet access to the Arizona side of the Tri-State as early as next month.
In addition to general computer repair and high speed internet access, Tech Needles also offers computer classes and website design and is currently producing the new website for the Needles Chamber of Commerce.
