I started a new blog – Cuenca Video Life The contents will be about People, Places and Businesses in Cuenca.
Set aside 30 minutes and peruse some of the interesting and esoteric sites on Gena’s Genealogy Website. In the video below I review “Old Magazines”, The History of Quilting and The Garbage Timeline. This is a run, don’t walk to site.
It’s been two weeks in the new house and I wanted to update potential Internet subscribers in Cuenca about the stability of the two services. Why do I have two services? I teach computer courses and host the Ipad Users Group and people don’t want to hear excuses that the service is down or slow.
TV Cable Internet: Meets or exceeds the contracted 6 mbs download speed and 1.4 up all the time. Only one down time in the two weeks and that only lasted 30 minutes. The Ping (the distance it takes to travel from one host to another) is often under 50 ms.
ETAPA – Missed two installation appointments. They showed up on time for the third scheduled appointment and installed the second service upstairs. This service has been perfect with no down time. The contracted speed is 1 mb down and the actual speed is 3mb down and 0.6 mb up with a delayed ping of >200.
YMWV – (Your mileage will vary) with ETAPA depending on the neighborhood and if you also have a house phone.
Cost Of Services:
TV Cable – $56
ETAPA – $24
Prices include 12% IVA

I love making short informative videos and it’s no secret that my favorite search engine is DuckDuckGo.com. The folks at DDG just came out with the best “about video” that I’ve seen on the Net. Less than 2 minutes and very informative. Run don’t walk and WATCH THE VIDEO
If you live in Cuenca don’t miss this fantastic display of 50 hummingbirds. If you live outside of my beautiful city then enjoy the video.
TV Cable was out at the new house to install our Internet Service. It seemed like an eternity but we were only offline for 4 days. I did a short review on the new Internet service here
