Hope everyone has a safe and healthy summer


Please excuse me for being late in getting out this information to you. But it is not my faultÖ On May 16, I received a message from Stratonet (my internet provider for over 15 years) that they were going out of business, and would be closing in 4 days (May 20)! Talk about shockÖ.. But then the real challenge beganÖ I tried to find another provider. just to find out that the larger internet ones (Century Link, Hughes Net, AT&T, etc.) were not available at my end of the block. I finally wound up speaking with Viasat, and they said YES. Just tonight (Saturday, June 8) the installer got me up and running again, after 20 long days! Unfortunately the Viasat charge is triple that of Stratonet. But what else can you, but pay what the company charges. Iím just glad to be on line again.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
