A little over 2 months ago MVTV embarked on an upgrade to our main licensed internet system located in Granite Falls. It called for dividing this one system into 7 transmit sites while increasing the overall system capacity; Granite Falls, Clarkfield, Cottonwood, Marshall, Minneota, Canby and Montevideo, MN.
As of November 1st, MVTV has completed installation of the new equipment on 6 of the 7 proposed sites. The only site not completed is Canby which we are waiting for a new state tower to be constructed.
With this change all customers on this system will also need to be upgraded. Only customers that get their internet signal directly from our main Granite Falls tower and have a modem will be part of this upgrade. Each customer will receive new outdoor equipment and new Cat5 wiring to your router or computer at no charge. Our customer service reps will call you as soon as possible or you may contact our office at any time to schedule an upgrade appointment.
MVTV technicians have already completed 152 change-overs as of Thursday, November 3, 2011.
