A man offers encouragement to his internet connection –“
He whispers to it, “Be strong. Be strong.”

Computer users at Silveridge may have tried whispering and many other solutions to improving their internet strength. We’ve been searching for ways to improve service, and we’ve found one that could help.

Turns out that the cables that run underground from the cable company’s pedestal to the residences are outdated and often in disrepair. Replacing the cable and the splices can result in an improvement in the quality of the signal to your modem.*

The cables are the responsibility of each residence and replacing them has varying degrees of difficulty. But we have arranged for a company called HPS to offer a flat fee for replacing the cable and splicing and testing the new installation.

For a flat $65, HPS will do the upgrade. As a convenience to our residents and to HPS, Silveridge will handle the payments for our residents. You just need to fill out a form and give it to, or send it to the office, along with payment.

For those of you not in town, you can get this done while you’re away, or wait till Fall.

There’s a PDF from HPS that includes a signup sheet. To download it, click below.


Or stop by the office, or call, and we’ll get you on the schedule.

*The internet signal goes through the cable to the modem in your home. For a wifi connection, you need to connect the modem to a router – it’s the router that sends out the wireless signals. The quality of the modem and router affect the strength of the wifi.

Here’s another in the series of cartoons done by Jerry Maryniuk (who winters at our sister park, The Resort). He’s putting together a book of his work on RV Park life and we’re grateful to get some first looks.

If you’ve ever taken a golf lesson, I think you’ll appreciate this one…
