Yesterday we hit a milestone for our RUS grant. All 35 units are now up and running and tested in all the buildings. The last two buildings had serious networking issues to be resolved. We do have a few buildings that are locked down to 128K due to bandwidth issues within the district network, but most of them are connecting at 384K.
It’s interesting to me that when you’ve struggled with a connection and the building coordinator has seen a black screen or horribly choppy video many times, when those problems are finally resolved, they are thrilled with the connection they see even though it’s 128K. But for those who are spoiled with more bandwidth and no problems at the beginning, they see the 128K quality and scorn it. It’s all a matter of perspective, right?!
