Brooksville Broadband News:

Two items re. your DSL service (if that's what you are using) Inbox


Email from Abbie McMillen

1.  Frank Szylvian’s phone numbers:

If you suddenly are having increased problems with your DSL service, this is the guy to call.  He tries to be helpful so we should try to be nice.

2.  A tip from Butler Smythe of Blue Hill:

With COVID-19,  increased demand on the Internet – from home – has raised more issues for many Americans, especially those with poor Internet Capacity (i.e. Speed). This is especially evident for those on DSL which uses traditional phone lines and ranks right up there with Dial-up! You CAN help yourself and others by doing one simple thing – and yes this has been tested and has worked for me for the last 3+ years. 
#1 TURN OFF your automatic Application Updates on your smart phones (All of them), tablets and anything else that uses bandwidth in the home or at work. Simple – it works, and it works for other services as well. 
I have looked at too much of the advice given for improving Internet capacity recently and not one “expert” had referenced this fact so I am here. This has been on the PUB site since it was set up....
Please pass it on!
