Default Moss Bluff Internet

I need some help with da choice of Internet in Moss Bluff on You Winn Rd. We had Communicomm until December and they SUCKED. Could never keep the service from going out. We would like to go with Cameron Communications but we can't get them until the end of the month. We need the Internet now because of my wives job. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Get your neighbor a wireless router as a gift and ask them it they will share it with you until you can get Cameron Communications at the end of the month.

Send Blue Wave 2200 a PM, he might be able to help you out. He works for Cameron Communications.

I can tell you how to get by till end of month but you have to give up that toy you call a phone or you can get a satellite, one more option is go get 200ft of phone cord and hook up to neighbour till end of month

You can get dsl through AT&T without a home phone. That's what we have. I'm waiting for Cameron Communication to get service to my house too.

damn , suck part about living out in stix, .....if you have a phone line, many companies offer DSL, although not as fast, gets the job done. Also, if that can't/won't work for you, if you can catch DirectTv(not really sure about the specifics)/already have DTV, they offer sat. internet. we have DTV and they offer it all the time, but we already have a decent speed DSL through the phone line.

The only speed dsl offered at my address is the next to slowest speed. I'm thankful I don't have dial-up anymore, but downloading stuff is a real hassle. My dad has satellite internet and it's easily twice the price and it's not that much faster than what I have. Cable is the only option for really fast internet unless you have Verizon 4G with a tethering plan and naturally Verizon doesn't offer 4G in Lake Charles.

I've tethered with my droid before when dsl was out and it's pretty slow. Definitely not something I would use all the time. I don't know if the mifis or air cards are faster. I read somewhere that verizon customers with 4g phones and a tethering plan will be grandfathered into unlimited data and be able to get unlimited 4g tethering for another 30 bucks a month. I'll post the link later when I get to work.

If this is accurate if someone gets a 4G phone from Verizon with a tethering package before they get rid on unlimited data on the 7th, they will be able to have unlimited data and unlimited tethering over 4G for $60 a month. For us the main downfall is the lack of 4G around here.

I am thinking Cameron Communications fiber optics system will not be ready this month......maybe by the end of August.

They came in my area [just a mile east of you] Saturday and did a little work on the "green box" and then left.....with the cover laying in the yard.

They still have not come back and pulled the "fiber optic" line through the orange conduit they install a month ago and I don't know if they have started doing that anywhere in Moss Bluff.

The man that was incharge of installing the conduit.....told me this was a "30 mile" contract and that another "40 mile" contract has just been issued for the Moss Bluff area. He also told me that our area should be ready for "home" hook-up by mid to late July. I don't see that happening that fast.

Today.....we got a letter from Communicomm saying that they were adding 7 new channels to our service and adding more option packages. The letter included a listing of all packages they offer. It looks like we [our house] will also loose 1 or 2 stations that we currently get] The letter did not say anything about that.

I think they are trying to keep customers.....knowing that they are about to loose a bunch of current customers.

Why are they going to loose a bunch of current customers? They are the best game in town!

I just wish they would make their internet packages 6/10/20, 3/6/10 is a little slow by todays standards in my opinion. And do something about the upload speeds. I would love to have a 20/20 connection.

YES I AM A BANDWIDTH HOG!

I now see that Gerald was talking about Communicom. My reference to internet speed is for Cameron Communications.

I find there speed is slow......service is so..so. [out for several days at a time] There tech service line is now only available on a more limited schedule.... not 24/7 like it use to be.

They announced 10 or 12 months ago that they were going to a faster system.....but never did, that I know of.

And we like watching LSU sports. Games are always being shown on CTS channel......which Communicom does not offer.

Gerald, I misread that part of your post. I thought you were saying that Cameron Communications was about to loose customers. I see now that you were talking about Communicom. My Bad!

Yep, I got that now. I've been awake to long today. I can't say enough good things about Cameron Communications. I do still want more speed though. Hurry up 6/10/20 packages.

I'll check on the You Winn Rd area and get a better idea of when they will be finished. The contractors are working as fast as they can and are taking advantage of all the dry days we have had to stay ahead of schedule. The best thing to do is call the Moss Bluff Office and get your name on the list. That way, when we do light up the fiber in your area, you are already in line for the installation crew to come out and hook you up.
