      It is a universally agreed upon fact that having a good playlist is of the utmost importance to any event.

      • What type of event are you having? (Kids birthday party? BBQ? Road trip? Etc.)
      • Is the music a main focus or more of a background feature?
      • What kind of atmosphere or mood do you want to create?

      Protect Your Family Online with Internet SafeGuard

      Posted by Brianna Cloney on Jul 12, 2018 12:00:00 PM

      How many hours a day do you spend online? How many a week? How many a month?

      We live in an age where the Internet is no longer a luxury, but an integral part of our daily lives. Almost everything can be managed through the Internet - banking, shopping, socializing, working – the possibilities are literally endless. So, it makes sense why people are spending more and more time connected.

      However, being constantly connected is a big responsibility. For as much great content there is on the web, there is bad content too. Malicious, dangerous content that can have real effects on your life, like identify theft for example, if you aren’t careful.

      Being your hometown provider means we strive to take care of our neighbors the best we can. That is why we partnered with a leader in cyber security, F-Secure. We’re excited to bring you the new comprehensive protection suite, called Internet SafeGuard, to ensure you and your loved ones stay safe online, on any device you use.

      6 Reasons Having a Landline Phone is Still a Good Idea

      Posted by Brianna Cloney on May 9, 2018 4:00:03 PM

      I know how much we all love our cell phones. They’re small(ish), seem to have infinite capabilities, are stylish, and keep the whole world at our fingertips. With the rise of smartphones, landlines have become somewhat of an afterthought.

      In fact, according to a study done by the National Center for Health Statistics, “50.8 percent of homes and apartments had only cellphone service in the latter half of 2016, the first time such households attained a majority in the survey.”

      Of the homes that still have landline phones, over 39 percent of them also have a cellphone.

      Although both technically are “phones,” cell phones and landlines are two completely different pieces of technology. And while the rise of the smartphone has dominated the headlines in the last decade or so, landline phones have also come a long way and still provide valuable services.
