Bad storms can quickly damage aerial power and communications lines and disrupt everyday life. But there’s no reason to have a cow over your communications services. Bloomingdale Communications' all fiber-optic network is buried underground, making it virtually immune to storm damage.
You can rest easier knowing your fiber internet and phone services from us will keep working in all kinds of weather. (This may not be the case with services provided over other types of networks.)
We promise to do everything possible to keep you connected — until the cows come home.
Remotes for TVs and media players get handled frequently, often by hands that are also grabbing snacks. So it makes sense to give your remotes thorough cleanings. How often? Plan on doing this at least monthly — more frequently if a family member is sick — to help avoid the spread of germs.
Follow these steps:
1. Remove the batteries from the back of the remote.
2. Dip a cotton cloth into rubbing alcohol and wipe down the entire surface of the controller.
3. Follow up with an alcohol-soaked cotton swab to carefully clean around the buttons.
4. If there's grime inside the buttons, use a toothpick to remove it. Dry the remote with a lint-free cloth.
5. Reinstall the batteries after making sure the battery compartment is completely dry.
We wanted to give an update on our Bloomingdale project. IT IS DONE. The contractors wrapped up the last piece in the Swan Lake Trailer Park a week or so ago and the construction is officially completed. Man. . . that is seriously great. Our company has focused on this job for approx two and a half years. It really feels great to deliver so a great service to our friends in the Bloomingdale area.
There are still lots of things to do. There are about 300 homes remaining to be converted to our fiber service from the old copper which will still take some time. Also, we know that some folks did not get a service drop (from the road to the house) and we have started scheduling them. Our techs are really doing a great job working those. Special thanks to Jeremiah, Keith, Dennis, and Jeff from VP. Also, thanks to Kim for scheduling those and working with the customers on that process.
The crews will still be doing restoration for lawn and yard damage along with general cleanup on the roadside. Please call in or use our website reporting form to notify us if you have any issues or concerns.
Our next big projects will be the two USDA-RUS ReConnect projects which we hope to begin a small part of next month.
