Pandemic Positives

In the year of social distancing, work-from-home, and remote learning, we’re thrilled to bring you and your household the robust Internet service you need. FairlawnGig provides the bandwidth that to support all your needs, even the unanticipated ones, like a pandemic.

As necessity is the mother of invention, we’re looking at 2020 as a chance to take lemons and make lemonade. Take a look at some of our customers’ stories about how they’re doing the same!

“We are staying at home most of the time since March. As two retired persons, we shop at senior hours very early in the morning, use take-out from restaurants at least once per week, use more on-line shopping activity, and stay in touch with friends via FaceTime or Zoom. We talk with our daughter and her family in San Francisco with FaceTime almost every night as our 22-month-old granddaughter eats her dinner. We watch online church every Sunday and use Zoom to communicate with a group from Northern Ireland most Sunday afternoons. My wife has a Zoom meeting about 2-3 times per week and I stay in touch with many friends in the same way. We “met” our financial planner over Zoom for our semi-annual meeting. FairlawnGig helps us conduct almost all of these interactions that keep us going during these very difficult times.”

– Chuck Monroe

“My husband and I both work in an office setting and before COVID 19, I worked from home 3 days a week while he was in the office full time.

In March, we were both assigned to work from home full time. With all the uncertainties related to the pandemic, having a reliable internet connection was not one of them.

We are both able to complete our workdays without any problems regarding internet. And we are very thankful. This allows us both to focus on more important items with both work and personal life.”

– Ben Goddard

“You guys are the best! The last few months have been a struggle, but the internet has never failed us! Thank you so much for being there! My kids have been doing online school at home and the internet connection hasn’t failed us. That’s important. I really appreciate you guys. Its affordable as well.”

– Sarah Wagner

“I’m a heavy internet and all things digital user. FairlawnGig has been one wonderful constant in this rapidly evolving landscape! I hear people complaining all the time about their ISPs, but I’ve never had any issues at all.

Without the great internet service from FairlawnGig, I wouldn’t be able to connect with the larger world at all! So, FairlawnGig is huge when it comes to getting through the pandemic! The price is great, the service is awesome and I’m a very happy customer! Thanks!”

– Victoria Shaw

“FairlawnGig has been a life saver during the pandemic. Both my husband and I are still working from home and each of us have at least three devices running at once. I’m a teacher at Forest Hill CLC and I can run 2-3 class meetings at the same time with my students while my husband is able to complete his meetings and work with no lag at all from the WiFi. We’re very happy to have this FairlawnGig!”

– Karen Smearsoll

“I moved to Fairlawn in the past year. I have been so impressed with the reliability and performance of the FairlawnGig service. Since March, I’ve been working from home and the service has been flawless… up until about two weeks ago when a garbage truck took out my broadband service. Within minutes of my call to FairlawnGig, two members of their team showed and found the fiber that connects to my house laying across the street. The garbage truck must have caught it as it was exposed due to some home improvement work.

Within an hour, I was back online. If you ever had residential internet service provided by one of the big telecom/cable companies, you would find the return-to-working-service part of this experience unbelievable. With FairlawnGig, this quality of service seems to be the norm.”

– Mike Farrell

“During the pandemic, we were told we would have to work-from-home which was a huge adjustment. Obviously, all internet services were crowded with users which slowed down and sometimes crippled some services. Everyone seemed to have issues, no matter their provider.

Thankfully, we have FairlawnGig and if it wasn’t for them, I don’t know what I would have done. When I first experienced some service drops, I called and I kid you not, they were here within a half hour to bring me a signal extender. They are always professional, knowledgeable and nice. I love FairlawnGig.”

– Babette Wilson

“Since March, FairlawnGig has supported my ever-increasing online activities including more shopping from home as well as seeing my medical professionals online. I’m also streaming TV and Music much more. Thankfully, my FairlawnGig service is supporting all of this!”

– Jeffrey Berno

“It’s been really nice having fast, stable internet. Yes, it’s been great for working from home, but it’s also been huge for staying connected with people. We’ve been able to host video meetups for our family and church group and it has worked great!”

– Daniel Angelis

“Teaching from home has been a real worry. There’s so much that can go wrong! I feel fortunate to have FairlawnGig. While many of my coworkers and students have had connection problems, my access to my students has been uninterrupted, consistent and flawless – even while my spouse is also working from home. FairlawnGig lets me be there when I cannot be there.”
– Matt Meister

“Thank you very much for coming out last week to fix my WiFi after hours! I work irregular hours on my computer and also only have WiFi television now, so FairlawnGig is essential an “essential service” in my home. Thank you!

As an aside, my engineer brother who lives in Michigan recently visited and hadn’t yet discovered my FairlawnGig. He was very impressed with the speed of my network and also that it is offered by the City. Envious, in fact. So… SCORE!”

– Lori Kidd

“I just wanted to show appreciation for what a great service FairlawnGig is. My wife, son and I have been at home almost all day, pretty much every day since March. We both work from home and our son is now doing virtual school. There’s so much online activity on a daily basis that FairlawnGig supports including work VPNs, Zoom meetings, kids’ videos, streaming Google classrooms, downloading apps, streaming Cleveland sports, online gaming on multiple devices at the same time, television streaming, general internet browsing, downloading and UPLOADING content. With all of this activity, both wired and wireless simultaneously, we never ever experience ANY slowdown. Everything is blazing fast and reliable, all the time. No data caps, great customer support, no giant corporations or outsourced support to deal with. All at an extremely affordable price. Thanks, FairlawnGig, we won’t move to another house unless you provide service there!”

– Jason Novelli

“This is such a wonderful service! I have to say that with all of the Zoom and WebEx meetings I now attend for work, FairlawnGig has served me well. When I see and hear delays and glitches during a meeting, I am confident that the problem is someone else’s problem and not with my network!

FairlawnGig, thankfully, also gave me the confidence to cancel my satellite TV and begin to use a streaming service. A move that has saved me a lot of money! Thank you for being such a reliable service!”

– Dave Haiduc

“The biggest change for us, besides not being able to see family and friends, is that we now have three people in our house working from home. We all agree that FairlawnGig has been BETTER than the WiFi connections we had in each of our offices. Not once have we had any blip in the system, or in my phone, which is VOIP.

With all of the stress happening around us, I’m so glad that I don’t have to worry about internet connections!”
