Announcing Laguna del Sol, Simpson Ranch, and Wilton Internet Service

We’re pleased to announce the expanded availability of reliable internet access service for the Wilton area, as well as residents of nearby community Laguna del Sol. As the premier internet provider in the area, we’re pretty excited to be making inroads into this rural community, where even cell phone service can be pretty hit and miss. We’ve been in contact with citizens of Wilton, Simpson Ranch, and Laguna del Sol over the last couple of years, understanding their frustrations with the lack of internet service, and working diligently to find a solution for them.  After a substantial investment in equipment, and many hours of planning, we are finally in a position to meet their needs as the premier Wilton internet service provider.

Ultrafast and reliable access to election day results

It’s finally time to head to the polls and wrap up this election season. You may think you’ve had your fill of news coverage, school assignments, and waiting in line at Starbucks debates so far, but come the day of the election it’s a whole new ball game.

On Election Day, the focus of our nation will be fixed squarely on the latest results, exit polls, and commentaries from every media source, podcaster, and social media outlet available. In what has become the most unpredictable and nerve-shattering presidential race in recent history, the internet has proven itself an invaluable resource for political information. With the addition of alternative viewpoints, in-depth analysis, comedy sketches, fashion critiques, and a nonstop steam of off-the-wall insights you just can’t get in mainstream media.

Free Streaming Opportunities for the Presidential Debates

For many of the people who have made the decision to cut the cord and ditch their pay TV services and turn to streaming services, one of the pitfalls they were forced to accept was that it wasn’t easy to be able to continue watching the large-scale events that were typically exclusively televised via the major networks and pay TV companies. In many instances, pay TV companies keep content which is being shown for free over the air behind lock and key to prevent non-subscribers from accessing events like the Olympic Games and 2016 Presidential Debates between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

Until now, that is!

A quick heads-up for our customers about an alarming trend we’ve seen recently.

The most recent attempt came through as a clickable image which redirected you to a fraudulent web site which asks you to input your email address and password.

The secret for stress-free streaming

In today’s world of Netflix, Hulu, YouTube and other online resources for entertainment, audiences are dropping traditional cable and satellite, and turning to streaming for the freedom to watch what they want, anytime, anyplace. Streaming services are band-width hungry, though, and can use from 1 to 4 Mbps easily – per person! Finding the large amounts of bandwidth needed, however, can be difficult, especially if you live outside the urban areas where corporate carriers focus their services.
