Not sure about that checker.

Is cable on the table? No, not yet anyway…

Tell me more… We’d love to be able to cable your area but you’re not in our next round of expansion plans. We are looking for future areas to cable though and yours could be one.
Work is in progress.

Get the 24/4 DOCSIS 3.0 build to here, followed by the 3.1 build and I'll be happy. I'm aware of what you guys have in mind for both and my/my employer's wallet is open

Re: Project Lightning Silence...

Im just waiting for the build to start in my home town as well! Patience is a virtue... we have some really impressive long term plans for DOCSIS and TV services, will be good to finally have a "decent" connection again.
