Jamestown Office Addition

In case you haven’t heard yet, we have some exciting things happening in the Jamestown office! We are in the process of building an addition onto the existing office, which will allow for more workspace and storage, as well as a larger training area and conference room. Construction began in the beginning of May, and the project is expected to be completed by the end of the year. When construction is complete customer parking will remain the same, but there will be a new customer entrance to look for, on the South side of the new addition. We apologize for any inconvenience throughout the process, and we appreciate our customers’ patience! We are excited for the project to be complete!

3 Steps to Smooth Streaming

This NEVER-ENDING winter has us all going a little bonkers staying indoors, are we right? What we’ll call “bonus” winter weather also has us streaming to the MAX. So we thought we would drop you a few tips to make sure you are streaming seamlessly!

3 STEPS TO OPTIMIZE YOUR STREAMING EXPERIENCE:

1-Check your connection: are you wired or wireless? If you are connected via Wi-Fi, that leaves more room for interference. If you are able to connect directly with an Ethernet cable, we recommend going that way.

2-Do a speed test: If your device is directly plugged in with an Ethernet cable, you should be close to your subscribed speed. If you are connected via Wi-Fi, you should be at around 80% of your subscribed speed. If you are not reaching those speeds- give us a call!

3-Router placement: Make sure your router is located centrally within your home. This way, any devices that are trying to connect over Wi-Fi should get a decent signal. If you still seem to have a slow connection or buffering, check the age of your router. If it is more than three years old, we recommend replacing the router (or ask us about our Managed Wi-Fi!).

If you’ve done these three steps and still don’t feel like your streaming experience is up to par, you may need to increase your speed. Our helpdesk staff is here for you- give us a call at 652.3184 or 952.1000 and ask for the Helpdesk!

Spring Sun Outages

Twice a year, in the spring and fall, you may experience brief television interference known as “sun outages” or “satellite sun fade.” This happens when energy from the sun overpowers satellites’ signals, which in turn causes interference with TV quality picture and sound. Interruption to TV service due to sun outages can last several minutes a day. Satellite sun fades typically occur between February and March in the spring, and September-October in the fall.

On the bright side, sun outages DO NOT affect Internet or Voice service!
