Plans for the new Altatech system called for the Cable TV system to be up and running before moving forward with the phone and Internet services.
There are currently 325 customers connected to the Altatech Cable TV service, with three or four more signing up each week. The channel selections include most of the same choices as residents have had in the past, with additional channels that were recommended by the programming committee. The Altatech service is offering a quality picture and good service at a comparable price and is proving to meet the needs of its customers.
With the Cable TV service up and running smooth and all subscribed customers connected, the Altatech employees are preparing to move forward with the phone system.
"We're going to be signing people up very soon," telecommunications building clerk Jen Sadler said. "We'll be sending information out in the mail that will list the calling features and other important information for everyone."
