Wow! It is rare, but not unheard of, to find locations where Consolidated offers Fiber to the home. If is available for you, it is probably the best option. In cases that I've seen around here,...

Hub 66

Check out Hub66 (https://www.hub66.com/). They offer fixed wireless in the area and I believe one of their antennas is in Meredith. If you are within 5 miles of their tower and can get line of...

Light, not copper is the next step

The current electric wires will not carry data. That was tried in other parts of the country about a decade ago with little success. Any new cable will be fiber optics. Instead of electricity,...

Rain records from Meredith

As it turns out, NOAA has a web site (https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/cdo-web/search) that lets you look up historical weather information for free. Going back to 1994 (26 years), we've had:

Manual ways are more expensive

Governments are adopting technology to increase efficiency while lowering costs, and meeting the needs of the majority. The push for lower taxes demand they do this. On-line systems means lower...

Finally, a couple inches of rain

Over 2" of rain has fallen since yesterday (10/17) and the lake is up 1.3 inches in 24 hours. That is a LOT of water! Throughout the day, more nutrient rich runoff will bring up the level even more,...

What kind of access?

Wondering if the law has been tested. Is access defined? If I can access by foot but not by snowmobile, is it a violation? I hope so.

A tarp with noodles and a chain

After years of frustration about my neighbor's bubbler, I started using a tarp curtain to contain the warm water to their property. The top of the tarp is wrapped around swim noodles, using...

Keeping safe in a kayak is similar to being safe in the woods during hunting season. It is the responsibility of the motor boat and hunter to not cause an accident, but if you aren't wearing bright...

Red marker missing

Just checked and the red marker is indeed missing at FL14. The flashing pole is still there. Keep the pole to your east as you go past it.

Yes, wake up. It is real

You are right. The NH governor has been pretty good about threading the needle of control and for the most part, it is currently working. The state and lakes region are among the safest areas in...

Let NHEC take the next step

The Carroll County Broadband Committee hasn't met for a while, so doesn't have a position on the NHEC vote at this time. Being on the committee, I've asked that a meeting be held to consider one. ...

We're getting in the weeds, but the goal remains to allow NHEC to move forward with planning a fiber infrastructure. It appears to be the best way to get high-speed internet to everyone, which the...

How many miles would be involved for Moultonborough? - about 204 system miles. Class 1=13, Class 2=19, Class 5=65, Private =107.

Vote Yes to Fiber everywhere

Hopefully this happens. In Moultonboro, more than half the town has cable, but there are pockets of homes that are stuck with the phone company's DSL internet. DSL is always below the standard...

Here's a map of Consolidated's expected speeds in Moultonboro. The data is at least a year old, so may be better than shown. Typically, to get the best speeds from them, you should order a bonded...

No-wake, 500' from shore and less than 20' deep?
