“What’s the Code to the Wi-fi Again?” — Neighborhood Guide to High Speed Internet Service in State College

What’s more frustrating than trying to send that important email for work or, more likely, stream the latest Katy Perry video on YouTube…and the error, “Your message cannot be sent” or “Buffering” scrolls across your screen denying you of instant technological gratification.  No $1 million dollar deal closed in an email, no Katy Perry cooking herself in a giant cauldron of chicken soup.  Phooey…(or whatever Phhff expletive you’d like to insert into your wi-fi nightmare).

I met a gentlemen recently who had a bone to pick with realtors in Central Pennsylvania.  “I really wish one of you would incorporate wi-fi and high-speed internet access into your presentations”.

Being a ‘Type A’ neurotic that aims to please, I said, “On it!”.
