Temporary service disruption on June 3-6

Posted on Monday Jun 3rd

Posted in News, Internet, Telephone

On June 3-6, Alliance will be making network changes in isolated areas of ALCESTER, HUDSON, LESTER, HILLS, LARCHWOOD and INWOOD. These changes will allow us to offer even faster Internet speeds in the future. Unfortunately, these changes will temporarily disrupt Internet, cable and phone services in those isolated areas.

Alliance will give you prior notification when we’re ready to start working in your area. You will receive a phone call to the number you have on record with us. Your services could be down for as little as 15 minutes or for as long as 2-3 hours, but the disruption will only occur one time at your home or business. To restore your services, unplug your wireless router, DVRs and set-top boxes from their electrical outlets and then plug them back in.

Alliance Communications, based in Garretson, S.D., received a grant from the State of South Dakota to bring fiber-optic broadband Internet to an underserved area north of Sherman, S.D.

“Connecting homes and businesses directly to a 100 percent fiber-optic network gives users the fastest and most reliable Internet connection available anywhere,” said Ross Petrick, general manager for Alliance Communications.

The project will bring reliable broadband to homes, farms and businesses and create new telecommuting opportunities to locations in northeastern Minnehaha County and southeastern Moody County along SD Highway 11. Network construction to approximately 65 homes and two businesses will begin this spring and will be completed late Fall 2019.

Alliance’s office will close on Friday, May 17, at 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. so employees can attend the funeral of Ryan Larson, who was an Alliance technician for the past 18 years.

Ryan was one of the technicians who covered our Baltic and Crooks communities. He was a great employee with a kind heart. He always had a smile on his face and was willing to pitch in whenever needed.

We deeply miss Ryan, and our office is very quiet without his cheerful presence.

If you need assistance while our office is closed, call 582-6311. To make a payment, use the drop box or click on the payment tab on our homepage. Thank you for your understanding.
