  1. Thank you, Sjay! Monies received have been applied toward a month of hosting, and license renewal. I encourage everyone if you really like this idea, to please donate. We're not doing this to get rich, we're merely looking to cover our costs so we can keep doing what we love. Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed, I will make sure your generosities are not forgotten. -Dan
  2. Hey guys, We need to renew our forum license, and also pay forward some web hosting fee's. If anyone would like to donate to the cause we could surely use it! -Dan
  3. To be honest with you maybe you could help document your installation and answering questions like this for future subscribers. There are currently multiple ways of installing the service, outdoor/indoor ONT's, etc. Centurylink uses a lot of the same equipment as AT&T's uverse, they can use ethernet, coax, or wireless for the set top boxes. And they limit around 4-5 devices, even with fiber.
  4. I could work a deal for the fiber. But not to get connected at level3.
  5. RST leased off 12 or so fibers to LMK/Clarity Communications who were recently bought by Lumos Networks, both company's have pivoted away from FTTH and are interested more in cell tower back haul/government. The RST service was never connected into Level3, it has sat dormant for almost 3 years now. I have reason to believe that the physical infrastructure is now being shopped around. I cannot comment on the deals they have with MCNC, etc. Long story short, RST in the triangle is official over.
  6. Speaking of growing in the area... Wake Forest could really use your help and the town government would love to talk. I'm sure you can google it, but a couple years ago RST Fiber promised to wire up the town, they built the backbone from Level3 to Wake Forest (15 miles of 144 strand) which terminates in front of the city hall. Recently the founder of RST passed away, and I know for a fact the infrastructure is up for sale. If you need an introduction please contact me... I know I talked to your vice president of fiber a few years ago on the phone but time passed and we never followed up. Link to RST Fiber in Wake Forest thread Thanks Adam.
  7. Adam, Are you working with small business and residential MDU's as well?
  8. Do you get all the local channels, NBC, CBS, ABC, etc?
  9. This seems to be Centurylink's M.O.
  10. They don't seem like the type of company to have brick and mortar, could be wrong. I believe everything terminates in one of the city owned buildings as this is a private/public project.
  11. I drove by and did not find a hut built at the addresses provided in the falls of the neuse or hwy 401 areas in Raleigh.
  12. that looks cool, ill look into it more tonight.

  14. He's not a very good tech reporter, at all. He takes press releases and dolls them up a little, but there's never any depth to his blogs. Using WRALtechwire to figure out what was going on with Google Fiber has been a joke.
