HolstonConnect installs and manages Comtrend WR-6895 Ethernet 400mW Routers. These wireless routers avoid long buffer times and take advantage of the latest high-bandwidth applications and services such as streaming of HD and UHD IPTV, home-automation, and online gaming.
Those with Holstonconnect's Managed Whole Home Wi-Fi will have access to port forward, change Wi-Fi SSID, set static IP's, and view connected device IP's.
Fiber-to-the-Home does not utilize coaxial cable or cable modems inside the home. Instead, an Adtran Optical Network Terminal (ONT) is installed inside the premises by a technician. An ONT is a network interface device used to convert media from fiber-optic to Ethernet wiring, serving subscriber devices. The ONT is powered by the subscriber’s electrical system.
Building structures can often obstruct your Wi-Fi reception.
6 Things that block your Wi-Fi:
The minimum residential service is up to 300 Mbps synchronized upload and download speeds for those subscribers who just want to check email and do a little internet surfing. The maximum residential service is up to 1 Gbps, which is fast enough to do most anything you would like on the internet. Take online courses, stream movies, and take advantage of the fastest speeds in the region!
With the large number of free e-mail services available providing such great service, our intention at this time is not to provide email.
Currently, we do not have any data caps on our internet service.
We do not have any sort of block on our service. Any blocks that you would encounter would be mandated by your firewall.
HolstonConnect assigns Public IP addresses that can be accessed over the Internet. Like a postal address used to deliver postal mail to your home, a public IP address is the globally unique IP address assigned to a computing device. A private IP address, on the other hand, is used to assign computers within your private space without letting them directly expose to the Internet. For example, if you have multiple computers within your home you may want to use private IP addresses to address each computer within your home. HolstonConnect internet subscribers will be able to secure their Comtrend router with a private password.
HolstonConnect customers have the opportunity to subscribe to a Static IP address for a low monthly rate. Contact us today to learn more about this service!
In most cases yes! HolstonConnect can successfully port numbers from several areas, carriers, and prefixes. If you have a concern about a specific number, please contact our offices via phone at (423) 272-8821.
If you plan to port your current telephone number to HolstonConnect for service, you will need to supply the name of your current provider, the name as it appears on your current account, your mailing address as it appears on your current account, your current account number, and your current password or pin. This information is required by the existing provider to release your telephone number to HolstonConnect.
HolstonConnect customers wishing to register with the "Do Not Call" registries should visit the following sites:
Tennessee Do Not Call Registry
National Do Not Call Registry
Those requesting service will need to provide the following: Name, Social Security Number, Valid Driver’s License Number, Date of Birth, Service Address, Mailing Address, Telephone Number and Email Address. You will also be asked if your electric service is underground or aerial and whether you own or rent the residency. If you rent, HolstonConnect will need to know if the location is an apartment, duplex or house.
Installation fees for new service are waived for those who maintain 12 consecutive months of service. Therefore, HolstonConnect customers will not be required to pay anything up front when scheduling a new service installation. The first month’s bill will be pro-rated based upon the number of days of service and any non-recurring service fees for additional outlets or wallfish will be included on the first bill.
HolstonConnect does not charge deposits to customers. Additionally, customers are not required to sign a contract. This is because HolstonConnect believes customers should not be tricked with promotional pricing initially, that ends with a much higher bill. In fact, those who maintain service for 12 consecutive months do not pay an installation fee either. HolstonConnect believes in rewarding customer loyalty!
