yes there is a problem with Wimax internet going on and off if you live in the Kings Mountain/Waynesburg area there was a tower recently put up that is causing interference with the signal I know this for a fact because that is what Steve told me when he was checking my internet connection he was talking about setting up a repeater no need to worry because Steve and his crew are on the job

I am so sick of Steve and his crap. He comes off as a nice guy and he may be but he is a LIER. I have been paying 39.99 for 1.5 that I never get 512 is the most I ever see. He has been promising 3g for over a year now. He says July the 20th its coming but I would not hold my breath. Now I have been out for 5 days and all I get is a full mailbox when I call....this weekend I had several business deals going and could not reach my Email. Needless to say I'm calling hometown and give them a try they could not be worse than the treatment you get from Wimax with no Express....

I have also been waiting on the upgrade, cause I dont get 512 on my 1.5 connection. He told me June 20, so he has done lied once. Will July 20th be the day, probably not.

Yep...we had the same issue. We were even close to the tower, and our connection was horrid. We had been on WiMax for about 2 years to try them out since there was no other option. It had been sucky from day 1. As of earlier this year, we switched to HomeTown Wireless, and I'll have to say I'm impressed with their service. They are a great bunch of guys and will work to solve your problems quickly! I actually get a call back from HomeTown..when I NEVER got a call back from WiMax. Just goes to show you that northern businessmen have a different view on things. You knew he's from Michigan, right? Anyways, HomeTown Wireless is the way to go if you're in the Waynesburg/Highland area...love the service! Soooo much faster.

Funny every time I call Wimax, Steve always calls me back if he doesn't answer. I never have any issue with my net being slow or anything unless they are doing an upgrade.

Jim if from Tennessee. If you don't believe that then look at the license plate on his truck. looks like a TN plate to me, that's illegal, he says he lives in Danville. My neighbor switched from hometown to wimax a couple of weeks ago, due to poor service. When they sent a payment in, it went to... you guessed it, Tennessee.

Oh, I was talking about Steve from WiMax. I know Jim at HomeTown is from around here. And he does live in Danville at the moment. But I meant Steve is from up north. :P

I went to high school with Steve. He's from Lincoln County. His mother used to run a video store near Jones Mobile Home.

I live in a rural area of Lincoln County and was using Wi-Max: one day out of the blue their service just disappeared - after calling WiMax I was told their competitor had placed new equipment that disrupted my service and they would no longer be able to supply this service to me. I did not think switching to Hometown was an option since they were the competitor and it seems these two companies are having their own personal issues but in the long run are affecting the customer "ME". Therefore I have subscribed to SkyWay USA satellite internet service - posibly the only alternative for rural areas - the number is 866-948-7105. The speed it not the greatest but at least I have service.

I've got the same response from 2 wireless companies in this area. Excuse for poor/intermittent service is blamed on interference from the other company. Fortunately I'm in an area serviced by dsl so I am making the change. I could not in good conscience recommend any wireless broadband service in Lincoln County.

We are a wimax customer out in the country and had trouble connecting for a few days. I called them the night of the 2nd day and the next day they came out took care of everything. I think they had to adjust our receiver (whatever it's called). I was very pleased with how fast they got there (and, forgot to mention, they called me back really fast telling me they'd be there the next day, and were.)
Both sucks

I had wimax and it sucked! But Steve would answer my calls or call me back. I switched to hometown and for a while it was great. Now it's just as bad as wimax if not worse. I do good to get .5 when it's supposed to be 3.0! Jim never calls back. They have sum guy in tn answering call that works in the accounting dept. He don't know nothing about the service. So what do u do?
