Important Information About Your Router Settings

Your wireless internet service uses 2 different frequency bands, 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. The GigaCenter that 3 Rivers provides contains both “radios”. The 2.4 GHz provides a wide coverage area but is subject to more interference and congestion from other devices. The 5 GHz service covers a smaller area but is less susceptible to interference and congestion.

Satellite TV Representatives

3 Rivers has received some calls from customers concerned about satellite TV representatives going door-to-door claiming they are working WITH 3 Rivers to help transition customers away from 3 Rivers’ TV service. This is not the case. 3 Rivers has not shared our customer list nor made an agreement with ANYONE to represent 3 Rivers in offering satellite TV as a replacement for 3RTV.

Fall Solar Outages Affect 3RTV

Twice a year, 3RTV viewers (and ALL TV viewers) across our area may experience brief signal pixelization, interference or loss of signal as the sun passes behind various satellites providing programming feeds. This phenomenon is known as a solar outage and occurs for a few weeks in the fall and then again in the spring. This fall, the outages begin late September and continue through mid-October.
