They seem to disadvantage a lot of people when it comes to getting rural broadband in their communities.</p> <p><strong>Elevate Answer:</strong></p> <p>Elevate’s fiber zone boundaries have been the brunt of confusion on many a social comment, email to our team, in-person conversations, and message board rants.</p> <p>So here’s the deal with Elevate’s fiber internet zones. They are confusing. And they do make it harder for some communities to get service. BUT we didn’t make them up, and they are not as random as they may seem.</p> <p>Elevate fiber zones like Olathe 148, Paonia 55, and Hotchkiss 67 were all predetermined by our electrical feeders and the areas those feeders serve (feeders is a fancy term for power lines). Our fiber must follow our electrical lines and poles because in doing so we save millions and millions of dollars. This savings allows us to not only exist at all, but continue building more zones. AND following DMEA’s electrical lines with our fiber lines is basically the ONLY way we would be able to bring fiber to your homes logistically.</p> <p>Also, it costs a lot of money to build a fiber-to-the-home network, way more money than other alternative networks like copper. We need you to show interest (aka preregister) so we know there are enough people who will buy our service to keep our business doors open. Bottom line, we want to make sure we can bring you the best internet, tv, and home phone for years to come, and the preregistration goals are our best guide to do that.</p> <p>Back to fiber zones. We know some are large and rural, some have what seem like impossible goals, and you can live in Montrose but be in Elevate fiber zone Olathe 148. But these zone boundaries are a necessary means to an end unless anyone has an ARMY (not a few platoons, but more like a few Roman Legions) of lawyers and $10s of millions extra lying around to foot the bill…</p> <p>We hope our efforts for transparency will help folks understand the necessities of doing business without being a billion-dollar company, and that this transparency will foster more understanding and appreciation for the processes that at first glance may seem arbitrary.</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="layout__region layout__region--third"> <div class="block-region-third"><div class="views-element-container block block-custom block--"> <div class="block__content"> <div class="form-group"><div class="view view--taxonomy-term view--display-block_2 js-view-dom-id-476cd4628669a9d2168a1e45720f9e963bd218c554a248ea7e0b05312daa3832"> <div class="view__header"> <h4 class="display-15">Popular Reads</h4> </div> <div class="view__content"> <div class="views-view-grid vertical cols-1 clearfix"> <div class="list-group views-col clearfix col-1"> <div class="list-group-item views-row row-1"><div class="views-field views-field-title"><span class="field-content"><a href="/powering-local-san-juan-brews" hreflang="en">Powering Local: San Juan Brews</a></span></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-deck"><div class="field-content"></div></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-byline"><span class="views-label views-label-field-byline">by </span><div class="field-content">Rachael DeRossi</div></div></div> <div class="list-group-item views-row row-2"><div class="views-field views-field-title"><span class="field-content"><a href="/internet-protocol-version-6-ipv6-here" hreflang="en">Internet protocol version 6 (IPv6) is here!</a></span></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-deck"><div class="field-content"></div></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-byline"><span class="views-label views-label-field-byline">by </span><div class="field-content">Dakota Cole</div></div></div> <div class="list-group-item views-row row-3"><div class="views-field views-field-title"><span class="field-content"><a href="/smart-homes-powered-elevate-internet" hreflang="en">Smart Homes Powered by Elevate Internet</a></span></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-deck"><div class="field-content"></div></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-byline"><span class="views-label views-label-field-byline">by </span><div class="field-content">Laura Sanders</div></div></div> <div class="list-group-item views-row row-4"><div class="views-field views-field-title"><span class="field-content"><a href="/som-shoes" hreflang="en">SOM Shoes</a></span></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-deck"><div class="field-content">You put them on and wear them.</div></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-byline"><span class="views-label views-label-field-byline">by </span><div class="field-content">Rachael DeRossi</div></div></div> <div class="list-group-item views-row row-5"><div class="views-field views-field-title"><span class="field-content"><a href="/elevate-tv-how-watch" hreflang="en">Elevate TV: How to Watch</a></span></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-deck"><div class="field-content">How to Watch </div></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-byline"><span class="views-label views-label-field-byline">by </span><div class="field-content">Becky Mashburn</div></div></div> <div class="list-group-item views-row row-6"><div class="views-field views-field-title"><span class="field-content"><a href="/switching-internet-providers-heres-what-you-need-know" hreflang="en">Switching Internet Providers?

Preregistration goals range between 35-65% of total serviceable meters per zone. We have done our best to extract non-serviceable meters on things like irrigation pumps and street lights. </p> <p>Zones that cost more to build have higher take rates in order to prove to our lending institutions (private and public) that we have enough interest to be able to pay back our loan. Additionally, higher take rates in more costly zones are needed to ensure that Elevate makes good financial decisions that keep us viable in the future. We can’t provide high-speed fiber internet to you if we go under. </p> <p>The footprint of some zones are big, like REALLY big. You may not be aware of the actual boundaries of the zones when it seems like the number of preregistrants is higher than the number of people that live in a given zone. Have you seen the size of Somerset 23?

Well, here is why. Even if your zone seems impossibly rural or uninterested we have dedicated a team, yes, a whole team of folks, that put together and apply for grants. BUT even the most beautiful grant application will fail if we cannot prove interest in our product. Grants REQUIRE community support. </p> <p>So if you are serious about getting Gigabit fiber to your house and you live in one of these zones show your support by preregistering, becoming an Elevate champion in your community, and filling out this letter of support to accompany grant applications while under review <a data-ft="{&quot;tn&quot;:&quot;-U&quot;}" data-lynx-mode="origin" href="https://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.elevateinternet.com%2Fpubliccomment%3Ffbclid%3DIwAR1-F-psDmvcRjZ7UQ0Lu7Nx4l1EtHfdJ-4zK72Z_dqUPgvHLEMwdfx_0mY&amp;h=AT3fg7XDHoTgeYtC-5cP5zoA3OEsF8U40kJ6OPj2viqKQTfsh7LNrAZOCJ8CwwM-wN_TpenKD40iFuI4dT-rDNTpzm6M49957VF5XZdcPLfaJR5QAGdShJbJzpYHjzvvIILmIz3hhTtUyhn3sONdOjbRaTDTV8V37bSHC_cqAa-1fyySgWbOSc0a2BmxqpMSBraMwGx3juWyMzInxPHvHKf9F6XtFbjOGO-Eg3l4oBxkqZ1XA1dqD08oek_V8wzez4FuCCpDd7sNDxkGCA-Pw5iKggRqXZb0bi3tzsh7pa6Va6KnbOikgETS3Zf1Jhqjx3-ut5azFQjXhVnzsy6hoB3AOr_Pr_-MVWD94P-gTZOip0OUH57vJxOWem9sahQ1ZXd0pv4qbeRjUF5mBr4grB1sMcpauU1ijLNijaOWOWFDrbSAMV8sOe1BysloYXeqp9il6H5fJirc5B9Rq_scmV66kDYNBpSOXTtArHYw8xhps4MZ-FKA9ftdLJ1UDD6duZdH7hFxdItMaLCp4uLDaTYd1SHCghJkUtQH_5E1I4UB5Tn64r5DQarqpLRTkDChLn5HbMoYPpGBO4PZ8_8vooYN2jrRSuv5mRZYEMwlvLXH_4mpJHcpObPi4xTLoguaEao7Cjx3TA" rel="noopener nofollow noreferrer" target="_blank">https://www.elevateinternet.com/publiccomment</a>. </p> <p>We currently have Olathe 148, Pea Green 128, Montrose 428 C, Crawford 57, Hotchkiss 68, and Delta 175 grants under review.

So what is Elevate doing about large rural zones that don't seem to be even inching towards their preregistration goals?</p> <p>Cobble Creek has it, why doesn't Delta 175, Pea Green 128, Crawford 57, or Cedaredge 124? Feels like those in desperate need for an internet solution are still being left out despite Elevate's claims. </p> <p><strong>Elevate Answer:</strong></p> <p>As many of you are painfully aware, the rural farming zones that make up much of our territory and neighborhoods are painfully hard to get to preregistration goals. </p> <p>At times, it may seem like no progress is being made. So we want to let everyone know what we are doing for our rural zones.</p> <p>Conventional lenders will not loan Elevate money for zones we can not prove have interest in our products. Thus, the preregistration process is absolutely necessary (unless anyone who is independently wealthy wants to foot the bill. Anyone??)</p> <p>Anyway, because of these lending requirements and our fiduciary responsibility to protect the future of Elevate, public funding is absolutely paramount for these zones. </p> <p>In accordance with the grant funding importance to rural zones, we have dedicated an entire team to securing state and federal grant funding for these zones. We have made the largest rural zones our very 1st priority for grant applications. We too know that these zones are terribly underserved, and that is why we are routinely submitting these zones/subzones with every grant period.</p> <p>So even though not everyone can see these efforts, we are giving it all we've got in order to bring high-speed internet to our neighbors, friends, family members and most of us right here in the office.</p> <p>Community Support is vital to receive grant funding.

After being slated for demolition, town leaders went to work raising almost 1 million dollars to pay for renovation costs. Now, the building that once housed the 6th-12th grade has been gifted back to the public, and includes wonderful amenities that help local entrepreneurs and families succeed and celebrate.</p> <p>Crawford Town Hall is now complete with an event hall, a playground, a community commercial kitchen, classrooms, a community room, and not to mention, a lot of history and love. While we were visiting, we were able to see this community commercial kitchen in action as the Crawford based Rock N’ Roots Farm team whipped up CBD salve for all your aches and pains.</p> <p><figure role="group" class="align-center"><img alt="Rock n' Roots Farm team making CBD salve for all your aches and pains!" data-entity-type="" data-entity-uuid="" src="//www.elevateinternet.com/sites/elevate/files/images/ComKitchen3-COMPRESSED.jpg" /><figcaption>Rock n' Roots Farm team whipping up a batch of CBD salve for all your aches and pains!</figcaption></figure></p> <p>While touring the hall, we spoke about recent milestones. This valuable community resource is but one of many efforts on the part of Wanda, Cathy, and yet another mover and shaker in the community, Callie Gallegos. Thanks to these ladies, tens-of-thousands of dollars have rolled in for things like the local firehouse, library, playgrounds, and Crawford community parks. DMEA and Elevate have had the privilege of being part of each of these initiatives.</p> <h3>The Crawford Town Hall and Elevate Connection</h3> <p>So, <a href="//www.elevateinternet.com/%20https%3A//www.elevateinternet.com/response-tds-broadband-grant-appeal-crawford">what does Elevate have to do with Crawford</a> Town Hall? Well, they have it for one. And for two, it wasn’t by accident or without work from these community leaders. These ladies have chosen to never settle for less-than just because they are a small and rural municipality.  Much like many rural communities around our service territory, these folks weren’t going to be satisfied until their town, too, was equipped with the modern amenity and economic boon that is Elevate Internet.</p> <p>Two years after Elevate Internet entered the scene, the Town of Crawford, was still without decent internet service. However, in the true Crawford spirit, Colleen took it upon herself to personally do the work canvasing neighborhoods in order to garner the support needed to bring Elevate’s fiber network to Crawford. After only two-weeks, Colleen had collected the preregistrations needed to meet their Elevate zone goal!</p> <p>And, six months after hitting their preregistration goal, this tiny town tucked up against the West Elks was hooked up to the gigabit speeds of Elevate.

Do we all realize the major advantages that kids with access to fast internet have over kids that are compelled to live in the dial up age?  How about the ability to gain quick, low cost information? How about access to breaking news, educational resources, and historical data at the push of a button? Recognizing the undeniable need for this resource, the Black Canyon Boys &amp; Girl Club fought for access to a modern connection. </p> <h2 class="text-align-center">The What, The Why, The How, and a Shameless Plug for the Black Canyon Boys &amp; Girls Club</h2> <p>Recently, when we had the pleasure of sitting down with the Black Canyon Boys &amp; Girls Club’s (BCBGC) Executive Director, Bud Taylor, and the Olathe Site Director, Tim Costanza, we spoke with them about what BCBGC has meant to them and what it means for others in our communities. We also spoke with them about how their club has benefited from having Elevate Internet at their Olathe location (and as of last month, their Montrose location too!).</p> <h3><b><i>The What</i></b></h3> <p>So, let’s start at the beginning for those of you that don’t know what the BCBGC is. The Boys &amp; Girls Club is a safe and affordable place for kids to come after school and in the summer months. But it is not just glorified babysitting, the BCBGC has a mission that focuses its energy on enriching and developing participants’ lives with the goal of developing better citizens through programs like Power Hour, Smart Girls, Jr. Chef, Smart Moves, leadership programs, conflict resolution, and now Hour of Code!</p> <p>Hour of Code, teaches kids how to code computer programing, and it was an impossibility before the arrival of Elevate Internet. This is a unique opportunity for kids in our rural territory to learn a high-tech and in-demand skill that can help them think outside their current hometown offerings.</p> <h3><b><i>The Why </i></b></h3> <p>Bud and Tim met at Boys and Girls Club of Montrose in 6th grade back when the Club was still being held in the high school cafeteria. Both confided that the Club was paramount in both of their lives. It kept them in school, out of trouble, taught them how to do laundry, fostered lifelong mentoring relationships, and gave them hope for a brighter future. Now it is their mission and their career to give their Club kids a head start with all the life skills from laundry to technology.  </p> <h3><b><i>The How</i></b></h3> <p>The BCBGC has two locations, one in Montrose and one in Olathe. While the Montrose facility can support 100 kids/day and has a 2-year waiting list, the Olathe location has room to grow with only 30 of the 100 school year spots taken. Each location maintains a robust <a href="https://www.bcbgc.org/the-club/our-programs">programming schedule</a> with opportunities for interests of all types. And our favorite program just happens to be their tech lab, also known as Hour of Code. </p> <p>After learning that Elevate Internet had come to the tiny agricultural town of Olathe, Bud and Tim were inspired to start a coding program to show kids that there is more than what Olathe currently has to offer. The kids have been incredibly excited to figure out the inner workings of how tech comes together and to realize that it is not all that complicated and that they CAN do it. In Bud’s words, “Anywhere can be the next Silicon Valley,” and they want to give Olathe a fighting chance at it.</p> <p>The Olathe Boys &amp; Girls Club is now the best place in town to access high-speed internet. In fact, so much so, that they have had to design a specially designated area for their Olathe High Schoolers to come and access their Elevate Internet connection, enabling them to complete their assignments.</p> <p>And don’t worry, the connection is safe. While Bud and Tim were working with Elevate to get the Olathe (and now the Montrose location too) set up, the <a href="https://www.instagram.com/elevateinternet/">Elevate NOC team</a> worked to establish a blanket of security for the kids using the BCBGC’s Elevate internet service. The security blanket built by the Elevate team not only ensures safe access via their hardwired computers but also from any personal devices that they bring along to club with them.</p> <h3><b><i>Shameless Plug</i></b></h3> <p>The Boys &amp; Girls Club of Montrose and Olathe are charter sites, which means they are locally governed and are 100% locally funded. Ineligible for national funds, this puts our rural boys and girls at a disadvantage compared to other metro Club locations and this is reflected in their facilities. After opening in 2002, the Montrose location has moved more than 20 times as they have outgrown one building after another.</p> <p>The Montrose site is still housed in a rented location which, once again, the Club has outgrown. But just like Bud and Tim fought for access to high speed internet so their kids could learn to code, they are fighting for a bigger and more appropriate location for the Montrose Club.</p> <p>Enter their Capital Campaign. The BCBGC are raising funds for a new location that is 18,500 square feet and includes more than 4 acres for recreation for the kiddos. This is a $3 million project, of which they are working to obtain $1 million each from grants, <a href="https://www.bcbgc.org/support-the-club">fundraising</a>, and loans. Bud couldn’t be more excited for the opportunity to support more families and futures once the building is up and in action!</p> <p style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt"> </p> <h2><b><i>Elevate Internet and The Black Canyon Boys &amp; Girls Club</i></b></h2> <p>Every year, Elevate is a proud supporter of the BCBGC. Their dedication to the future of our communities is reflective in our own, and it is what reaffirms our commitment to this organization. Plus, they now have Hour of Code and an adequate connection for better educational opportunities all powered by Elevate Internet. Olathe, a town with one stop light, now has the ability to turn out the next Apple app. And we couldn’t be more proud to be one of the enablers of this forward progression.<span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">   </span></span></p> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="layout__region layout__region--third"> <div class="block-region-third"><div class="views-element-container block block-custom block--"> <div class="block__content"> <div class="form-group"><div class="view view--taxonomy-term view--display-block_2 js-view-dom-id-be17193cb435d0ae5eaaa89c0615099270d17c90a82efcbe413a833a277210f0"> <div class="view__header"> <h4 class="display-15">Popular Reads</h4> </div> <div class="view__content"> <div class="views-view-grid vertical cols-1 clearfix"> <div class="list-group views-col clearfix col-1"> <div class="list-group-item views-row row-1"><div class="views-field views-field-title"><span class="field-content"><a href="/powering-local-san-juan-brews" hreflang="en">Powering Local: San Juan Brews</a></span></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-deck"><div class="field-content"></div></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-byline"><span class="views-label views-label-field-byline">by </span><div class="field-content">Rachael DeRossi</div></div></div> <div class="list-group-item views-row row-2"><div class="views-field views-field-title"><span class="field-content"><a href="/internet-protocol-version-6-ipv6-here" hreflang="en">Internet protocol version 6 (IPv6) is here!</a></span></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-deck"><div class="field-content"></div></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-byline"><span class="views-label views-label-field-byline">by </span><div class="field-content">Dakota Cole</div></div></div> <div class="list-group-item views-row row-3"><div class="views-field views-field-title"><span class="field-content"><a href="/smart-homes-powered-elevate-internet" hreflang="en">Smart Homes Powered by Elevate Internet</a></span></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-deck"><div class="field-content"></div></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-byline"><span class="views-label views-label-field-byline">by </span><div class="field-content">Laura Sanders</div></div></div> <div class="list-group-item views-row row-4"><div class="views-field views-field-title"><span class="field-content"><a href="/som-shoes" hreflang="en">SOM Shoes</a></span></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-deck"><div class="field-content">You put them on and wear them.</div></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-byline"><span class="views-label views-label-field-byline">by </span><div class="field-content">Rachael DeRossi</div></div></div> <div class="list-group-item views-row row-5"><div class="views-field views-field-title"><span class="field-content"><a href="/elevate-tv-how-watch" hreflang="en">Elevate TV: How to Watch</a></span></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-deck"><div class="field-content">How to Watch </div></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-byline"><span class="views-label views-label-field-byline">by </span><div class="field-content">Becky Mashburn</div></div></div> <div class="list-group-item views-row row-6"><div class="views-field views-field-title"><span class="field-content"><a href="/switching-internet-providers-heres-what-you-need-know" hreflang="en">Switching Internet Providers?

Elevate’s 100% fiber network was now powering all schools within the Montrose County School District with 1 Gig internet.</p> <p>Prior to this, students and families who needed to get online found themselves in dire straits. That’s why when Elevate first began providing service in the Town of Olathe, the Black Canyon Boys and Girl Club worked with us to create a safe space for local students to connect to the internet. An early adopter of Elevate, the Club opened their doors to local students, setting aside a room for them to access online resources and stay on par with their urban counterparts. And now that both the Olathe Elementary and High School are receiving 1 Gig internet too, it’s easier than ever for students to connect.</p> <p>Across the Montrose County School District, elementary students can join online art classes or participate in virtual math programs, middle schoolers can learn to code, and young adults can pursue educations and careers in computer programming, marketing, and website or app development from the comfort of their hometown. We may enjoy a slower pace of life here in the valley, but that doesn’t mean our children are growing up with a slower connection to the world and, ultimately, their futures.</p> <p>It’s not just the students who are enjoying the benefits of Elevate. The Montrose County School District cut their internet bill by 30% and is now operating on a single closed fiber network. This allows for rapid troubleshooting and resolution of any issue along the entire network, getting students and teachers back up and learning at record speeds. And lastly, Elevate also provides weekly network performance reports to the district so that, together, we can ensure their service is at peak performance.</p> <p>Knowing that our rural students have access to the same resources as their urban counterparts makes us pretty proud at the end of the day.

Or cheaper? Or better customer service? Or, you moved? There are a lot of reasons you might be looking to switch internet providers, but let’s face it, switching is a pain. You’ll spend time—which is always in short supply—canceling your existing service and waiting on your new one. Not to mention the frustration of reconnecting your devices to your new Wi-Fi network (seriously, who was the evil genius who invented wireless printers?).</p> <p>But you’re here because you’re ready to make the switch. So, here’s what you need to know to make switching to Elevate (or any new provider) as pain-free as possible.</p> <ul><li>It pains us to tell you this, but before you sign up with Elevate (or any new provider) check with your existing provider to ensure that you aren’t locked into a long-term contract with termination fees.<br />  </li> <li>Next, make sure Elevate Internet is available in your neighborhood. Search your address at <a href="http://www.elevateinternet.com">www.elevateinternet.com</a>. If you’re in a neighborhood where Elevate is available, just follow a few steps to place your order. If Elevate isn’t in your neighborhood yet, you can still express your interest in bringing it there.<br />  </li> <li>Since our network is brand new (as in, we build it to your home when you order it), the standard wait time for connecting a new service is 2 weeks. This gives us time to locate any underground utilities, like water or gas, and build the fiber to the side of your home.<br />  </li> <li>An Elevate customer service representative will call you within 1 to 2 business days of completing your order. This is an important call. Not only will you pick a date for your home install, but you’ll review the following too.<br />  </li> <li>Do you have sprinklers or invisible dog fences? Or a special request for how we bring the fiber to your home? Now is the time to let us know, and we’ll make sure our construction team works with you to understand and meet your needs.<br />  </li> <li>We’ll follow up that call with an email with even more important information. Read it. We promise it’s worth it. It tells you all about the following.<br />  </li> <li>Snap a photo of or scan an image of your driver’s license—we need this o set up your Elevate account. You can fax the image to 970-240-1208 or email it to <a href="mailto:customerservice@elevateinternet.com">customerservice@elevateinternet.com</a>.<br />  </li> <li>Then, setup your online Elevate account using your email address and the temporary password we provided in the email (see, we told you it was an important email). While you’re in there, don’t forget to set your account to autopay under the ‘Billing and Payments’ tab.<br />  </li> <li>You will also be randomly assigned a security pin, which is included in the email (like we said, important). Remember this 4-digit number because you’ll need it if you call Elevate about your account. It’s a best practice security measure to ensure only you can access your account information.<br />  </li> <li>This next step might seem out of the ordinary, but as mentioned above, it’s because we’re building a new network. If the home you’re living in has NOT had Elevate service before, we’ll need to complete some exterior work before your in-home service installation. This involves bringing the fiber to your home, either overhead or underground, and installing a grey communications box, called a demarcation box, on the side of your home. This box is where the outside fiber lines will connect with the inside fiber lines that get placed during your in-home service installation.<br />  </li> <li>Next, it’s time for your home install. Now that you have a scheduled date, it’s time for you to schedule a cancellation date with your current provider that is at least 1 day after your Elevate install. This ensures you won’t see an interruption in internet service.<br />  </li> <li>Make a list, mental or otherwise, of all the devices in your home that connect to the internet. These will all need to be reconnected to your new home Wi-Fi network.<br />  </li> <li>During installation, an Elevate technician will install your modem and router, plus activate your home Wi-Fi network, including setting up your wireless network name and password. They will also hardwire one device to your router (up to a 5’ ethernet cable) and connect up to 6 wireless devices. If you’re looking for an even more robust home install, consider opting for an <a href="//www.elevateinternet.com/elevate-internet">Advanced Install</a>  or our <a href="//www.elevateinternet.com/elevate-internet">Complete Home</a> package.<br />  </li> <li>If any of your devices require access to a personal account or app in order to connect it to the Wi-Fi network (for example, an Amazon Echo or Nest Thermostat), we won’t be able to connect it for you. This might sound a bit inconvenient, but our top goal here is to protect your privacy. We can talk you through it, but you’ll need to ensure you are prepared with the username(s), password(s), and a working knowledge of the application(s) you use to manage your device(s).<br />  </li> <li>Now it’s time to get online. If you hardwired a computer directly to your router, it should automatically connect to the internet.<br />  </li> <li>Grab your list of Wi-Fi devices from earlier and start reconnecting them. Although every device is different, in general, you’ll need to go to settings &gt; Wi-Fi and select your network. Then, enter your password and go!<br />  </li> <li>Our Elevate technician will leave you a magnet with your Wi-Fi information so you can keep it handy for guests—or yourself. We can’t be expected to remember ALL our passwords these days, right?<br />  </li> <li>If you ever have questions or concerns about your Elevate services, just give us a call 24/7 at 844-386-8744.</li> </ul><p> </p> <p class="text-align-center"><a href="//www.elevateinternet.com/sites/elevate/files/Blog%20Content/Switching%20Providers-with%20intro.pdf">Step-by-Step Downloadable PDF</a> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="layout__region layout__region--third"> <div class="block-region-third"><div class="views-element-container block block-custom block--"> <div class="block__content"> <div class="form-group"><div class="view view--taxonomy-term view--display-block_2 js-view-dom-id-836107916e2f3a66a8951b609880c0575eb53cf07914d7d086d89578b777af2b"> <div class="view__header"> <h4 class="display-15">Popular Reads</h4> </div> <div class="view__content"> <div class="views-view-grid vertical cols-1 clearfix"> <div class="list-group views-col clearfix col-1"> <div class="list-group-item views-row row-1"><div class="views-field views-field-title"><span class="field-content"><a href="/powering-local-san-juan-brews" hreflang="en">Powering Local: San Juan Brews</a></span></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-deck"><div class="field-content"></div></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-byline"><span class="views-label views-label-field-byline">by </span><div class="field-content">Rachael DeRossi</div></div></div> <div class="list-group-item views-row row-2"><div class="views-field views-field-title"><span class="field-content"><a href="/internet-protocol-version-6-ipv6-here" hreflang="en">Internet protocol version 6 (IPv6) is here!</a></span></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-deck"><div class="field-content"></div></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-byline"><span class="views-label views-label-field-byline">by </span><div class="field-content">Dakota Cole</div></div></div> <div class="list-group-item views-row row-3"><div class="views-field views-field-title"><span class="field-content"><a href="/smart-homes-powered-elevate-internet" hreflang="en">Smart Homes Powered by Elevate Internet</a></span></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-deck"><div class="field-content"></div></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-byline"><span class="views-label views-label-field-byline">by </span><div class="field-content">Laura Sanders</div></div></div> <div class="list-group-item views-row row-4"><div class="views-field views-field-title"><span class="field-content"><a href="/som-shoes" hreflang="en">SOM Shoes</a></span></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-deck"><div class="field-content">You put them on and wear them.</div></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-byline"><span class="views-label views-label-field-byline">by </span><div class="field-content">Rachael DeRossi</div></div></div> <div class="list-group-item views-row row-5"><div class="views-field views-field-title"><span class="field-content"><a href="/elevate-tv-how-watch" hreflang="en">Elevate TV: How to Watch</a></span></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-deck"><div class="field-content">How to Watch </div></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-byline"><span class="views-label views-label-field-byline">by </span><div class="field-content">Becky Mashburn</div></div></div> <div class="list-group-item views-row row-6"><div class="views-field views-field-title"><span class="field-content"><a href="/switching-internet-providers-heres-what-you-need-know" hreflang="en">Switching Internet Providers?
