At The Connected Home, we know all the tips and tricks to give you an edge on the TV and internet companies. We will save you time, money and the hassle of switching your services. We started this business in 2012 because we know customers see the need to switch services to get the best deals, but hate doing it. We wanted to give our customers the opportunity to have a meaningful conversation about their options for connected services, and making switching a much more pleasant experience. Owner Chris Goodwin has worked in leadership roles for Centurylink and Comcast. That means we have the expertise to help our customers find the right services for them at the lowest price.
Satellite internet once had a reputation for being slow and unreliable. Providers like Viasat are relegating that idea to the distant past. Viasat (formerly Exede) provides the reliability, quality and convenience we all need to stay connected and conduct business in today’s world. And it does it at a price point of $50 to $60 a month. We have Viasat connected in our office; it routinely delivers 15-20 mbps. If you’d like to try it, please stop by. Satellite has data limits, so it’s not optimal for heavy users, but it will deliver solid performance to areas that once had extremely limited service options.
When it comes to big cities that have it all, Minneapolis rises to the top. Scenically located on the banks of the Mississippi River in southern Minnesota, it’s the larger of the Twin Cities — home to nearly 4 million people. It’s rich in water, with a variety of lakes, streams and wetlands connected by parkways. Named after the city’s first school teacher, it still enjoys a well-earned reputation for academic excellence and quality higher education. The third most literature city in the United States, Minneapolis also is a cultural hotbed of music, theater and visual arts. The city is second only to New York City in live theater per capita. It enjoys an eclectic, diverse population of young and old, drawn there for its unique mix of creative reputation and progressive social values intermingled with Midwestern values. The Minneapolis-St. Paul area thrives financially as well. A total of 19 Fortune 500 companies have their headquarters here. It is richer by median household income than New York, Chicago or Los Angeles, yet has a relatively low poverty and unemployment rates. Its location far from other major metropolitan areas makes it a regional draw for its generally talented, educated residents.
