EDITOR: In Pleasant Valley, we are stuck with dial-up for the Internet. That probably surprises many of you, since you have had wireless for quite a while. Wireless does not work here, which, of course, includes our cell phones.
We lose a signal as soon as we leave Diamond Springs, Cedar Ravine and Newtown roads. This is extremely frustrating, especially when you have been used to an instant answer to any of your inquiries on the Internet.
Many requests have been made to AT&T and other companies that advertise instant Internet connections. Their answer is lame. “You do not have enough people in your area to warrant the expense.”
The last time I looked, we have two schools, Gold Oak, Pleasant Valley and a fire department in the middle of those schools. I realize that the schools and fire department have different access to the Internet, but families live here and send their children to those schools. They need access to the Internet to help children do their projects, and adults who need a problem solved with a myriad of home projects, not to mention news, sports, etc. I am urging all residents in this area to phone AT&T and complain to them for their lack of professionalism and unconcern for our residents.
