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.
