Located within minutes of our state capital, our suburban area is surrounded by farm land. A lot of these areas previously were only served by slow DSL, dial-up or received poor cable signals. The Viasat Internet (formerly Exede) system has given many of our customers a far superior option. With Viasat, location is no longer an obstacle to good, reliable service. Viasat’s high-capacity communications satellite makes faster download/upload speeds and a reliable connection possible for everyone, at an affordable price. The Viasat Voice service allows our customers that have been paying for Verizon a more affordable option without the crackle and buzz many otherwise experience on their phones.
Watervliet, about 15 minutes north of Albany, is home to about 10,000 people. Bordered on three sides by the town of Colonies, this historic community also is know as the Arsenal City. Explorer Henry Hudson arrived in the area that would become Watervliet around 1609. In 1813, the federal government purchased several acres to construct the Watervliet Arsenal. It is the oldest federal arsenal in the country, and the sole manufacturing facility for large caliber cannons Watervliet also is the first Shaker settlement in America. The Shaker Heritage Society educates visitors on the influence of Shakers in the region, and has helped restore and use the remaining Shaker buildings in the area.
