Internet Connection: 1. Bob Staib announced that the new high speed internet feed was installed last week and is operational. The speeds are now twice as high as they were on the old system.
2. Bob also said that as far as we know all people who have asked for service and who are now in residence are now connected or are being connected today. After Koffee Klatch two additional people came forward and are also being installed today. If you are presently in residence at Saddlebag and want the new service PLEASE contact Bob immediately as the rest of August and all of September will be spent installing systems at homes of people who are coming back in the Sept-Dec Time frame. If you have not already contacted us and you want service before Dec 31, please send an email to Bob at email@example.com containing the following information.
B. SLR address (stump number)
C. telephone number where we can contact you.
D. date you expect to return to Saddlebag.
E. Do you have an old Lake Wales Wireless antenna
F. If so, was it the old square flat panel antenna or the newer white plastic antenna about the size of a brick.
We will contact you by phone or email to arrange setup.
4. Bob explained that every antenna account must have an associated SLR website login account. Some people have as many as 13 SLR Logins, so he will need to contact everyone with multiple accounts and weed out the extra ones. He doubts if he can have this completed before his surgery but plans on completing it soon after he is home and back to work. If you are not on the install list please call Ginnie Staib at 863-215-7988 to arrange to get on the list.
