Contact ResTech Services with Internet Service Questions

Internet service is better when an ethernet cord is used to plug your device into the wall jack.  Restart your device so it connects to the hard-wired Internet instead of searching for the wireless.  If problems persist see ResTech Services.  Improvements to wireless service are planned and will be implemented in summer 2015.
