WINDOWS 10, DO YOU WANT IT OR NEED IT?
As many of you have heard or noticed, Windows has begun pushing their next version of Windows, 10. One of the issues already popping up online is that this new version has people in the security field up in arms due to privacy concerns. Windows 10 seems to grab far too much of your data and sends it back to Microsoft and it's partners. Why do they need to know your contact list, your emails, your wireless router password and your browsing history just to name a few things they take? PLUS as with all new operating systems, there are always bugs and glitches for the first 6 months that get patched.

So at this time, not only do I NOT recommend upgrading to Windows 10 for the average user, personally here at the Pyramid Office I will not even allow any device onto our local office network that is running it, even if it's a customer's.



IMPORTANT REMINDER: TECH SUPPORT NOTICE TO ALL CUSTOMERS!

If your internet connection goes down, DO NOT push the reset buttons on your modem or router, be it DSL, Cable or Fiber Optic. (Matter of fact, NEVER PUSH THEM no matter what!) The moment you do that, you have blown out all the settings in those devices. Do the following...

1. Unplug the power to the modem and router if you have one. (if you are using switches turn those off to)
2. Wait 3 minutes to let them cool down and to clear out any cached memory. Then plug them back in and test your connection. Always check by trying to open various websites like google, yahoo or msn.
3. If it's still not coming up, call the office.

With thunderstorms and the forest fires in the area effecting power and noise on the lines, modems/routers can go into an "on hold" mode that restarting will clear.
We can also experience localized and even regional outages which can take the internet offline for as long as a day in some instances and in some rare cases, even longer.



SUMMER TECH SUPPORT HOURS

Office Tech Support hours are switching over to it's summer schedule starting in June. Summer hours are Mon-Friday 9-6pm, Sat-Sun we will be closed.
As always, we will still be available for emergencies.

PYRAMID IS UPGRADING INTERNET SPEEDS!

Starting the 1st of November, Pyramid will be offering higher broadband speeds for our customers. Please call for details.

I am happy to say that no ISP in northern Nevada offers a broader range of services than Pyramid.net. All the way from 56k dialup to 300 Meg services Broadband, DSL and commercial class cable Internet for the home. Nobody else has the range and the 20 years experience to back it. It has been an interesting ride. The little town I first came to 42 years ago has changed quite a bit. Where Bill Harrah loaned me a car so I could do survey work when mine was damaged in a landslide. The landscape and feel has slowly evolved over the years, but Nevada is still Nevada. Now with the advent of Tesla we are on the cusp of a new era. I'm glad we will get to see it.

Bob McDermand, President Pyramid Net.


Just a reminder to our customers.

If you are buying a new computer, we strongly recommend you avoid Windows 8. The changes between 7 and 8 are so severe that the learning curve is huge.

IF you need Windows Live Mail, use this link to download it for 8.

Is your ISP capping your internet usage?

At Pyramid Net, we have no bandwidth cap. We do not limit how much bandwidth you use a month unlike other ISPs in the area. If you aren't a Pyramid customer, then you may be in for a surprise on your bill.

Read here.

What is a cap? It’s just like the old cell phone minute plan. You have a set limit of data you can download and upload a month. If you reach that limit, then you are charged extra when you go over.

This is especially bad for those that use the internet for media like Netflix and other streaming video or those that do large backups on a constant basis.

For more info give us a call at 884-3202
