The TCT West man just left after hooking up the wireless connection. The phone works and my computer works. We ran a speed test to Chicago and it was really good, he said. I signed the paper and they will send me a bill. Works for me.
He said he could hook up to any phone jack wherever we wanted, but we only had one which was behind a cupboard. Had to move the chest of drawers and the cupboard with all the photo albums in it to get to the jack. Not that big of a deal really, but sure was dusty down there. So I did a quick sweep up job while he was outside. He had to put on a new jack with two outlets. Then I had to find an adapter for the three prong power strip and he grounded that as well. Apparently the outside box needed replaced because it wasn't up to code anymore. He said they quit making that model about 40 years ago. I said it was probably "state of the art" when it was put in. Gma said they got the phone in 1979. That's when the line was put in out here. Before that she had to run to town and use McLean's phone. Anyway it took a little less than an hour and everything seems to be working just fine.
The road construction is working on the approaches today and they did ours shortly after we got home from coffee. Good thing we got home when we did and didn't want to go out for lunch. I got pics which I will share later.
