WSPA back up temporarily

WSPA HD ch 207 and MeTV ch 107 are back up temporarily. They are up as a test trying out the new way WSPA is handing the signal to us. If the signal is not stable enough we may have to take it back down. Until further notice you might notice the picture tiling, breaking up, and pausing. Please bear with us as we continue to work with WSPA on this matter.

WSPA CH 207 and MeTV ch 107 Out

As you may have noticed WSPA HD (channel 207) and WSPA MeTV (channel 107) are out on both of our systems. This is due to the tower WSPA was using to transmit the signal to us has fell in the Tuesday evening winds. We do not know when or if they are going to fix or replace the tower. We are talking to WSPA now to see how we can get the signal back on. At this time we do not have an answer. This is completely out of our hands at this time and any updates will be posted on the website. Please do not call the office with questions about these channels but keep checking back on the website for updates.

Sun Outages causing channel drops

From the end of last week, through the weekend, and the rest of this week we will see some satellite sun outages. These satellite sun outages cause some of our channels too drop off for anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes. Most of them happen only once per day in the afternoon or evenings and only once per channel. It is possible that it could also run into this weekend and part of next week. Please have patience as there is nothing we can do about these outages. If you want too know more about what a sun outage is you can go here.

Thank You.

Fiber Line Cut

We have a fiber line that has been cut on the east end of Burnsville that will affect service to the South Toe Area and all areas in the east end of the county as well as multiple locations in Mitchell County.  We have Technicians on site working diligently to get service restored as quickly as possible.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Line Cut

This afternoon crews working on the road construction at Newdale cut our line that serves customers in the Newdale, Arbuckle, and 80 North area.  Our Technicians are working diligently on the repairs but these areas may be effected for several hours this afternoon.  We apologize for the inconvenience and will return service to normal as soon as possible.
