You’ve probably heard of Elon Musk and his company Tesla by now, but did you know that in addition to making cars they have also started a satellite internet company called Starlink.
Starlink is a satellite internet service that utilizes Low Earth Orbiting satellites. Starlink’s idea is to surround the earth with thousands of satellites to form “constellations.” The goal is to provide internet service that is on par with DSL and cable connections. The LEO satellites work in combination with ground transceivers to deliver internet to you.
While still in it’s infancy, Starlink has been and will be a gamechanger for many rural customers who do not have access to any high speed internet. Yes, there are still many places in the United States that do not have access to any internet. Starlinks stated goal is to cover the earth with these satellites and provide speeds up to 10 Gigabytes per second.
We’ve been installing them for about the past year and have seen speeds ranging form 20 MBPS all the way up to 150 MBPS. That’s a wide gap for sure, but Starlink is just getting started. They have a lot more satellites to launch to get to the 10 GBPS goal, but as most of rural customers already know, even the 20 MBPS is a great improvement over existing satellite internet services. The two biggest advantages of Starlink are low latency and unlimited data. Latency is another measure of speed. A measure of the time the request is sent to the servers, and the time it takes to get back, and load in your web browser. You can sign up for Starlink here: https://www.starlink.com/.
The basic kit comes in at $600 for just the equipment, and then is $110/ month for unlimited data.

The 2GIG EDGE panel lies at the heart of a home security and automation system. Never before has one panel offered so many security and automation options in one sleek package, including:
And the control options don’t stop there. In addition to these exciting new features, the EDGE panel is also fully compatible with a full line of encrypted sensors and Z-Wave devices giving full access to all the control systems in a home or commercial business from the same panel. These include products such as:
With both the 2GIG EDGE Panel and EDGE Remote Keypad – a secondary touch screen keypad designed for use in a different room or area of the house – a homeowner can control each of these systems with ease and are alerted to changes that may occur with any of them. For example, the 2GIG-FT1-345 Flood and Temperature Sensor monitors ambient temperature and detects wet and dry flood conditions. With the EDGE panel, you will be alerted immediately to any changes to help prevent water damage.
The EDGE panel is fully compatible with 2GIG Encrypted Sensors. The Glass Break Detector can sense broken glass in a range of up to 15 feet, and relays this information directly to the EDGE panel. And the wall-mounted Motion Detector unit offers wide-angle protection of spaces up to 30 feet deep by 50 feet wide and can be set to tolerate animals up to 55 pounds.
And thanks to its built-in Z-Wave Plus V2 functionality, the EDGE panel works directly with smart home automation products. The 2GIG Smart Z-Wave Plus Thermostat makes controlling the temperature in a home a breeze, and the Z-Wave Plus Garage Door Opener Remote Controller accessory can be controlled directly from the EDGE panel and is compatible with virtually any automatic opener connected to a sectional door.
Each of these systems works directly with the 2GIG EDGE control panel and Alarm.com to keep customers informed via a mobile phone or panel and a home automated at all times of what’s going on in your space.

Growing up, we watched quite a bit of TV in the house – which seemed to be made even more amazing when cable came along. It felt like there was an endless amount of options compared to what our giant dish satellite could bring in.
Back then, we only got the major players, ABC, FOX, CBS, and NBC. When we upgraded to cable, we had dozens of channels to choose from. But as time went along, pricing went up and never stopped climbing.
The days of only a few channels over-the-air is long gone. With a modern cable antenna installation, you can watch high-definition cable TV without the monthly fee.
In Spring Grove (where our HQ is located), your TV antenna will bring in over 50 channels. In York and Hanover, you’ll get a few more. And again, all of this is without the monthly price tag.
Just so there are no surprises, this is what most of our customers are able to get after installation. We put them in alphabetical order so everything is easy to find.

PBS Kids 24/7

People are always shocked when we tell them what they’ll get, and it definitely is surprising based on satellite dish offerings of the old days. Thankfully, times have changed! You can get way more without the monthly cable bill.
In Spring Grove, we are actually able to get almost 100 free cable channels with our antenna. However, some of them are duplicated. For example, we have several FOX channels, but they are all from different affiliates. While the main blockbuster shows are all the same, news, local sports, and other weekend/weekday programming can be different.
Subchannels, as they are sometimes called, are a great way to stay-up-date on what’s happening in your direct community as well as regionally. Each FOX channel offers their own unique, niche content that you wouldn’t have the option to see on through a regular cable TV package.
Like anything in life, you sometimes get what you pay for. This can definitely be said about TV antennas. If you’re out in a more rural area, you might need a larger and more expensive antenna to get all the channels possible. However, if you are happy with the main, hyper-local stations where you only potentially get a few dozen, you can absolutely get a less expensive antenna that doesn’t reach as far. We are always happy to give our clients all the information so they can make their own choices.
At Frankton Telecommunication, we love saving our clients money by helping them eliminate their monthly cable bill. We can help with cable TV antenna installation, satellite dish removal, and any other telecommunications service you might need.
