Press release from the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Department:
Verizon has reported 8 cell towers are offline impacting internet services in the Hopland and Lake County area. Crews are on scene and conducting repairs. No estimated time of restoration, however they do not anticipate an extended outage.
We don’t have access to DSL or cable internet here on Black Bart Trail in Redwood Valley. We have Ukiah Wireless. Satellite internet. A dish on the roof points to a tower west of Ukiah. We get 25Mbs for $80 something a month. And it works great if you can’t get DSL or cable. These small satellite internet companies are all over. I’ve heard not all have the same level of service though as Ukiah Wireless. And I’m not sure how big their service area is. But it might be an alternative.
