The tower has been finished for weeks but the holdup has been getting power run to their pole.
This morning Vince was out doing some things and I hadn’t seen him for a while so I went out to check on him and I noticed the power company was down the driveway working on getting power hooked up to the pole for the internet tower.
Vince tells me that once the power is “installed on the tower” (whatever that means), it will be about two weeks before our new internet is hooked up.
I understand that life can go on without internet but since we stream our TV shows, have to use wifi calling for our cell phones to work, don’t have land lines and both of us are internet hogs, it will be so nice to have high speed internet. Even when we lived in the rental when we first moved here, the internet was awful, then here it’s been bad, worse, somewhat better. We’ve had Brady Communications for several years and it’s the best we could get but we were supposed to have 5 Mbps down and often it was something around 3. Uploading photos to the blog was near impossible unless Vince turned the TV of, got off the internet, we disconnected the iPads and other tablets from the internet.
It’s going to be so nice having 50 Mbps download. For those living in towns/cities, that probably seems slow but for those of us in rural areas, it sounds amazing! I am so ready for this to be working!
