Moving is never easy, even the basics like getting power, water and internet connected can be difficult.
One family ran into issues getting their internet up and running in their new home.
David and Monica Swain were thrilled about their new home. They signed up for their phone and internet to be connected. They had a connection date of July 16 but say it had to be rescheduled to July 24.
Then they got another note saying there was an outage in their neighborhood and their service couldn’t be connected for another 30 days.
David works from home and couldn’t go that long without internet. He says he had trouble getting a straight answer as to why this outage applied to him, but all his neighbors were getting internet and phone service from the same company.
