Internet Status - February 2015
Amtech is no longer providing Engish Towers with Internet service, and we expect to have internet service operational in English Towers by our April 25, 2015,
the meantime, for those who will be at English Towers over the next few
months, know that Internet service is no longer available. This
will be an inconvenience, but you will also not be paying for the
service you are not receiving. Regular DirecTV will not be affected by
the termination of the internet. If you have added services with
DirecTV, such as On-Demand, or have a streaming device, e.g., Roku,
blu-ray player to have over the internet features, e.g., Netflix, Amazon
Instant Video, Hulu, You Tube, etc., these services will not work
without the Internet. The internet fees you have paid with the January assessment
for February and March will be held over and applied to the new
a temporary bridge alternative, Verizon can provide English Towers
units with High Speed Internet DSL (1-3 megabits per second) along with
regional essentials telephone line service for $49.99 per month. There
is no contract for this month-to-month service, and it can be
discontinued at any time. This service will require a DSL modem and
work over your phone system. If you need to buy a modem/wireless
router, Verizon can provide them for a one-time fee of $49.99.
Alternately, modems that are DSL compatible can be bought at stores such
as Walmart or Bestbuy, and may be cheaper. Note that the monthly DSL
service is still required with the DSL modem. Please contact Verizon to
make arrangements if this temporary alternative is of interest to you.
If you are not planning to use your condo, or otherwise do not wish to
participate in an alternate service arrangement, no further action is
required on your part.
regret the added inconvenience, but hope we are nearing a satisfactory
solution to the Internet service issues that have plagued us over the
last year. We will keep you posted as activities proceed.
