FAQs: Most Common Questions
Q: Why are our cable rates going up every 18 months?
A: Local TV stations are demanding increasingly higher fees to be included on TV Provider’s line-ups, even though they are still available free over-the-air. National broadcast networks are adding to the burden by demanding a cut of local stations’ fees. If their demands are not met, they pull their signals from their viewers and ask you to complain to your TV Provider, leaving you without your favorite programming until an agreement is reached. And if those fee demands are met, it results in higher prices for you.
Q: Why do you have data allowances for your internet speeds?
A: Data allowances help us maintain the integrity of our network so that we may deliver fairly to each and every customer. We do offer the ability to expand your allowance to an unlimited level for $30/mo.
Q: What is your stance on Net Neutrality?
A: Buckeye Broadband has supported, and continues to support, the open internet and principles of net neutrality. We don’t plan to change our practices. We are proud to provide our customers with the best and fastest internet service in the communities we serve.
Q: Why am I receiving so much spam e-mail now?
A: E-mail spam lists are often created by scanning, stealing mailing list addresses, or by searching the web for addresses. Online directories are another source of e-mail addresses. The more internet activity you participate in with your email address, the more likely you’ll end up in a spam list. For more information, visit our blog.
