So we watched the bulldozers, trench diggers and cable guys drive up/down and tear up sections of our Rural Road over February/March. So Finally is peaked my interest back in March to ask them what was going on. The guy tells me that they didn't have the rights from the CRTC to have the Microwave Internet antennas in this area and that they have to remove them by August 1, 2009. In fear of loosing my High Speed internet in this rural area I asked him what they were doing about it. They told me that since the areas around us in each direction has Cable that they were going to wire our section (6 Houses in 2 KM) with cable so they could get us all off the Microwave internet. So I get a call yesterday that the system is in place and they are going to offer me 6 Months FREE service on any service I take. We signed up for the TV, Internet, Home Phone! They are giving us a Panasonic Cordless phone for free, and they are swapping all our Satelite boxes for equal boxes of theirs. I paid the difference for the HD box to upgrade it to a dual-tuner PVR. I can't wait for them to come tomorrow afternoon... The internet will be worth just the switch because the guy on the phone told me that because our area is so far out they ran FIBER to the junction point so our speeds back to the station will be superior. My speed now will go from 1 MPS/256K to 8 MPS/2 MPS! I can't wait!!!!! Whats more is that I was used to this speed a couple years ago when I lived in the city and I miss it a lot, especially connecting via VPN from a hotel etc. when away for work. Also it will be nice to watch TV and surf the Net when we are having a bad storm, whereas now we loose everything due to the high winds shaking our TV tower and all the equipment attached to it so there is nothing to do.
