Info Night Notes

Our info night from May 8th covered the following information:

Greenlight Networks Presentation

Disclaimer: Greenlight Networks is a for profit business. We invited them for an informational presentation at the request of our residents.

A rep from Greenlight came and gave a brief presentation. Neighbors have expressed interest in knowing about this alternative to Spectrum internet. The main points of the presentation were:

  • Greenlight is a fiber based internet (instead of over cable line)
  • It is consistently fast and does not slow down with average use.
  • Addition of fiber can increase your home’s value up to 3%.
  • More information is available at the following links:

Cord Cutting

We discussed various options for replacements of your home phone service. If you’re interested, email us and we can send you the presentation.
