Mediacom 4

Yesterday I received good news from the Front Office - "stay home because Mediacom will be there this afternoon". So I stayed home. Guess what? They didn't show up.

It's now late in the day on Saturday. They still haven't shown up.

Mediacom 3

Mediacom will be at Coffee & Donuts tomorrow to take orders. A good rumor is that internet will be installed for the lucky "85", sometime on Monday or Tuesday.

Re: High Speed

Still no internet access, but we do have Cable TV throughout the park.

Mediacom 2

Cable TV is working throughout the park. It was nice to see many football games this past weekend.

I'm still hoping that internet installation will happen soon.

High Speed

I've been back in the Park for a while and have some updates to the other blog; failed miserably in getting this one updated. Sorry.

Once we get Mediacom installed and I'm satisfied with the speed, I'll provide some information on the programs I'm using to get media from the internet. Maybe someday you won't need cable tv service! In fact, Blockbuster Video has just been added to TIVO and we can now download videos instead of getting them in the mail from Netflix (Netflix has that service, also, but the selection is slim). The price is $4 per video (a dollar cheaper than Amazon) and may be a cost-effective alternative to Netflix.

Mediacom 1

Latest rumor - Mediacom might install first customer this Friday.

Mediacom has been in the park the last few days. I've seen guys walking around with blueprints; they've delivered, and installed, several new covers for the cable junction boxes; and, they're testing connectivity at all the pedestals in the park. I can't tell that anything has been buried from the highway into the park. Still thinking that "service" will be 10/15 - don't know who will be the first.

I've got everything set up in the Park Model - currently using Boxee and Hulu. Just waiting for the higher speed!! Wish I could get now - lot's of football games to watch.
