Update: We managed to figure out a way to keep our internet connection at home, but at a drastic loss of connection speed. No more online gaming, streaming video or Skype phone calls for a while.
But, as I said – we do know that Cox is getting competition in this area finally. Even better, the competition is Craw-Kan – a customer-owned Co-Op that my dad has been part of for over 20 years. He gets his electric, cable TV, broadband internet, AND his house and cell telephone through them, and because he’s an owner, he gets a DIVIDEND CHECK back from them every year. Oh, yes – we’ve already contacted them and asked to be informed the minute they are able to connect to our address.
