Tomorrow we are getting cable TV back and faster Internet

 Russell has been paying Charter for Internet service.  We did away with cable television to save money.
 We been getting 60 Mbps down and 5 Mbps up.  But we never go the 5 Mbps.  Sometimes 4.5 up but most of the time just 3 or 4 up.
We now Charter has a special deal and you can get 100 Mpbs down and 5 up IF you take cable TV.  The price is not bad for 12 months.  No contract but there is a $26.00 fee to set it up.  Russ signed up for it. The will be here tomorrow at 2 PM.
So tomorrow I will have about 130 channels of cable TV to watch, HD TV and a DVR box to record and play back.
Today they must have done something with the Internet speed.  We are a little over 60 Mbps down now but we get over 5 Mbps on the uploads.

If you been reading Howard’s Notebook or watching my YouTube videos you know that right now AT&T has put fiber cable on the street right in front of our apartment complex.  Russell says if AT&T offers us their 1 GB up and down Internet service that he will pay for it.  His plan is to keep both services!

I setup a bulletin board system called Howard's Notebook in 1982. People connected at 300 baud. Upgrades and new things were done until 1995 when the world wide web was invented. Howard's Notebook was then moved to the web and is still in operation. I been blogging since 1982! I had one of the first webcams online.
