CenturyLink and El Centro are hosting an open house this Tuesday from 4 to 7 p.m. to introduce Internet Basics, an affordable Internet offering for income qualified customers. Beacon Hill is also becoming a CenturyLink Fiber Lit neighborhood, meaning that residents of our community will have access to next generation internet speeds of up to 1 Gig. You can find out about both of these offerings at Tuesday’s open house.
Estella Ortega of El Centro will give a short introduction at 5 p.m., and free tacos from Maya’s Restaurant will be served. Please come to the event and share this info with any of your neighbors who might be interested.
I am a member of UPTUN (Upping Technology for Underserved Neighborhoods), which has been working to improve access to technology for the past 5 years. We are volunteers making sure WAVE, CenturyLink, Comcast, the City of Seattle, etc. improve internet and cable services. We want improved speed, better reliability, and more competition in every neighborhood in Seattle. Please visit http://www.uptun.org/ for more information of what we do.
