Your CVCTX Website is Getting a Facelift!

Colorado Valley Communications is adding new website features and navigational tools to give our members-customers a better, smoother user experience. The site upgrades will include restructured and reorganized search functions, with easy to navigate paths to our most popular and relevant pages.

Here’s a quick glimpse at some of the high-level upgrades coming soon to the CVCTX website:

 Business vs. Residential Solutions:

We’ve simplified the path to get information. New sections have been created – Business & Residential Solutions – to help navigate your way around the site. By designating specific pages, businesses and residents can easily discover available products and services that focus specifically on their unique needs.

 Voice vs. Internet

CVCTX offers voice and internet services and now you will be able to search for products and services specifically related to your business or residential needs. Once you choose your path (business or residence), quickly navigate to the service of your choice – Voice or Internet.

 Support Page:

Our new Support page will feature quick links to our most popular information – all in one place. Find relevant data on a wide variety of topics including alerts/notifications, technical support, account information and much more.

CVCTX continues to listen to our members-customers on ways to improve access to our services and  customer information. We are excited about launching our website’s facelift in a continued effort to enhance the end-user experience.

We hope you take some time to look around and enjoy the new navigational features and tools.

Power Outages and Backup Power

For customers who don’t receive voice service over a copper line, a battery backup solution is needed to maintain voice service during a power outage. Without a battery backup solution or alternate power source such as a generator, voice customers on fiber or fixed wireless will not be able to make calls during a power outage, including emergency calls to 911.

Colorado Valley’s optional battery backup solution does not provide power to any services other than voice. Home security systems, medical monitoring devices and other equipment will not run on Colorado Valley’s backup battery. It’s important to note the battery backup doesn’t provide power to a cordless phone, instead a standard corded phone must be connected directly to the modem.

The standard battery from Colorado Valley is expected to last 8 hours on standby power, and additional batteries may be added for up to 24-hours standby time. Proper care and use should be followed as directed by the manufacturer. The batteries will not last forever and should be replaced as directed by the manufacturer.

For more information about the battery backup solution from Colorado Valley, please call 800-242-5911 or email info@coloradovalley.com

Smart Rural Community Provider

La Grange, TX October 8, 2020

The communities in portions of Fayette, Lavaca and Lee counties in and around La Grange, Schulenburg, Fayetteville and Weimar TX today announced that Colorado Valley Communications was recently named a Smart Rural Community (SRC) provider by NTCA–The Rural Broadband Association. SRC is a national network of communities powered by innovative rural broadband providers that are building a brighter future for small-town America. The program promotes rural broadband and its role in supporting innovative economic development, effective education, efficient energy distribution and use, state-of-the-art health care and other important issues for rural America. 

In order to receive recognition as an SRC provider, Colorado Valley Communications was required to affirm that it offers 25/3 Mbps broadband to at least 50% of its service area; that it has broadband subscription rates of at least 50%; and that it is committed to program principles of collaboration and innovation. As a result of Colorado Valley Communications national recognition, the communities served by Colorado Valley will now be celebrated as Smart Rural Communities in program materials and online at www.smartruralcommunity.com, joining a national network of similarly innovative communities. 

“Congratulations go to Colorado Valley Communications for its hard work to meet these standards, which will help local residents participate in a new world of online digital possibilities. With affordable high-speed internet connections, Colorado Valley Communications will hopefully see the communities it serves benefit from educational and economic opportunities that are competitive with services in any large American city.” – Senator Lois W. Kolkhorst 

NTCA Chief Executive Officer Shirley Bloomfield also recognized Colorado Valley Communications for this achievement, noting, “We are so excited to welcome another Smart Rural Community provider into this growing network of innovative broadband providers delivering the Internet’s fastest speeds in some of the most remote and rural communities of our country. I applaud Colorado Valley Communications for their commitment to enabling cutting-edge technologies that drive innovation and promote economic development in their region and nationwide.”

Unplug Modems During Lightning Storms

PLEASE remember to unplug your high-speed modem and router during lightning storms.  Surge protector can’t always protect your equipment.  If your internet connection runs through the phone line, disconnect the cord from the jack because power surges can also travel through the phone line and fry your equipment.
