UPDATE July 16, 8 a.m.: The transition to the new equipment was completed around 2:30 a.m.

If your services didn’t return automatically, please try rebooting your router and cable TV DVR/set-top boxes. Refer to these videos for instructions on rebooting your equipment:

If your services don’t resume after rebooting, call us at (605) 582-6311 for further assistance.

Also, approximately 30 channels are missing on basic cable TV. Our technicians are working to restore those as quickly as possible.

Thank you for your patience as we complete these final upgrades so we can offer faster Internet speeds later this year.

We are in the final stage of some equipment upgrades that will allow us to offer you faster Internet speeds later this year.

On Tuesday, July 16, from 12:01 a.m. to 5 a.m., we will be replacing equipment at one of our central offices. You will lose all Alliance services at some point during the transition, and some services could be disrupted from a half hour to several hours.

Your services should return automatically. However, if they don’t, you might need to reboot your wireless router and your cable TV DVR/set-top boxes. Watch these videos for tips on how to reboot your equipment.

We know it’s never a good time to disrupt services. We hope to minimize the inconvenience by performing this upgrade during the early morning hours when our network usage is the lowest.

We’re excited to announce that this is the final equipment upgrade and service outage that we have scheduled in preparation for launching higher speeds later this year. If you have questions, please dial 611 from any phone with Alliance service or (605) 582-6311 from your cell phone.


Alliance transitioning to new equipment for offering faster Internet speeds

Alliance currently is transitioning customers to new central office equipment that will give you faster Internet speeds later this year.

However, during this equipment transition, some customers may experience temporary freezing or buffering. High bandwidth users, such as telecommuters and gamers, may notice these issues the most.

Our upgrade will continue thru July, and we are working to minimize services issues as much as possible during this time. Typical troubleshooting tasks like rebooting your router and replacing equipment at your home or business won’t correct this particular issue.

We’re excited to offer customers faster Internet speeds, but we apologize for the inconvenience you may experience during our equipment transition. We appreciate your patience over the next few weeks.
