Would love to see it in North Mitchell, but satellite was up and running the day after the hurricane. The only advantage I can see with having satellite.
I live in the unincorporated area of Albany. My friends can’t believe that I can’t stream movies or have unlimited internet due to satellite options being the only option!
Patmos area could sure needs some help!
