I am continuing my quest to have Sky Cable installed at our current address. Once again, they will send some people out to see if we have a post near enough our house to install it. I am not optimistic. I have resigned myself to a lifetime of watching shows on my computer (downloaded off the internet) or watching fuzzy TV. Most neighborhoods have normal television with a clear signal. It is only in my neighborhood where it is so bad and likely caused by the 20+ houses that I am sure have tapped into our signal. If we ever wanted to piss the neighborhood off, we could not pay our bill and they would all lose cable.
The utilities are a big plus of moving. I am looking forward to:
1) 24-Hour Water (the water in our neighborhood is currently shut off at 9PM each night)
2) Better cable service (Sky is in our new neighborhood)
3) Better internet service (there are only two providers in our neighborhood and one was unable to connect it)
4) Garbage that is collected on a regular basis. Other than garbage day, we never see anyone's garbage can. Plus there is no garbage on the street.
