We live in some really scary times. I knew that it was heading towards Bermuda, but did not know about Florida. I have a friend who lives there.Well, there's a bigger much worse hurricane on its way to Florida. The Governor already claimed a state of emergency and asked everyone to evacuate before it hits.
There are many rural customers like my sister and dad that have very slow internet. Internet TV will not work for them. Try streaming with a download speed less than 1 Mbps. It is not pretty.
I only have 3mb down and I stream Netflix just fine. But that's probably only 720p. 4k would need fiber speeds. Especially for multiple streams.That's the same way it is here right now.
I can get 3.5-4.0 Mbps here, but that's as fast as we can get right now.
Our electric co-op is in the process of wiring the entire county with fiber.
Right now it's in the two largest towns.
Next year they plan to begin rolling out all over the county.
It will probably be two years or so before it is available where I live.
Can't wait for it to get here they're offering 100Mbps and 1Gbps service.

Is Dish still planning to add the Olympic Channel to their lineup. I have not seen it uplinked. I didn't know if it was put on hold with the Hurricane in Houston and flooding in the Houston suburbs.
I thought about that, also!!!! Have you seen it uplinked? I also thought after what happened in Texas with Hurricane Harvey, maybe, that was a reason why it was not uplinked!!!
