Midco service outages leave exasperated residents and businesses in the lurch

I got lucky. When I got home this afternoon my cable was finally working. I had dreaded the thought of hours on hold and thankfully didn't have to deal with it. But, you know, the inconvenience and annoyance to residential customers is one thing, but the number of businesses suffering is beyond the pale. It made me realize just how much businesses rely on internet access, something I'd never really thought about outside of my own job needing it (heck, our calendar is online; no internet, no way to make appointments!) That people can't reach their doctor or get a prescription filled, locally owned businesses losing money because they can't run credit cards or fill orders, this is really, really bad. And Midco definitely needs to compensate those who lost out on business and work. Their excuses don't cut it. They should have planned for the worst instead of assuming everything would go right.

Trump ridicules female TV host's looks, calls her crazy; Kansas congresswoman objects

Wow, I actually have a modicum of respect for Jenkins for her response.

I couldn't believe it when I saw Trump's tweets pop up on my cnn feed. Wow.

Midco continues to address outages following conversion from WOW; 'vast majority' now have service

I'm glad so many are getting their issues resolved. I guess when I get home from work if the tv is still not working right I'll spend the night on hold. I was too busy last night to do it. Really don't want a new DVR as I have at least 40 hours of unwatched shows saved. Also have to finish setting up my account because I stupidly had them send the authorization link to sunflower which I can't access from Wow or Midco online and lost access to on my phone when Knology switched to Wow. First world issues, but really frustrating. I'm just glad my business was one of the ones with Midco internet that worked yesterday!

Midco continues to address outages following conversion from WOW; 'vast majority' now have service

I've had internet since I got home and rebooted the modem at 5:00. Still only have channels 3-31 and the rest say "not authorized". Can't access my dvr--really hope the shows I'd saved are still there--can't get the guide even for the working channels to show me what's on. Have unplugged the dvr three times, still not working. On the non-DVR tvs I get the usual channels you get with basic. And I still can't get my sunflower email online either at Wow or at Midco. Not impressed, but I also didn't have time to spend three hours on hold.

Internet and cable outages reported as WOW services convert to new company

Nope, says my email (still a sunflower one) is "not on file" at mail.midco.net at least through Chrome on my computer. Not my main email account thankfully but some people still email me there. Very not impressed by midco.

Internet and cable outages reported as WOW services convert to new company

Just got home from work. Have internet (after rebooting) but only 3-31 channels on the tv which I pay a hell of a lot of money for much more than 28 channels. Everything else is "not authorized". This is really annoying. Guess I'll be listening to the Royals on my computer tonight instead of watching it on tv.

Internet and cable outages reported as WOW services convert to new company

I guess I'm lucky my work has internet as a lot of businesses with midco are out! I don't remember there being these kind of issues when Sunflower switched to Knology or Knology to Wow. Boy do I miss Sunflower and their excellent customer service and techs.

Yep, no internet at home (didn't check the tv) and the online email login just goes round and round saying it's logging me on. Luckily I stopped using my sunflower email years ago when it stopped working on my phone, but people still sometimes email me there so I like to check it every day. Great start Midco.

Bumps ahead for 'Obamacare' repeal as Americans air worries

Good. It barely passed the House where there's over 45 more Republicans. It's not going to pass the Senate's slim Republican majority as is and may not pass at all. Good.
