February Is National Bird Feeding Month

Download Images to View Mid-winter is a tough time for wild birds, since snow often covers their natural food sources of weed seeds and insects. That's why February was chosen as National Bird Feeding Month. About one third of adults in the U.S. currently feed wild birds. If you're not among them, now's a great time to join the fun. Here are a few tips:
  • Hang the feeder in a strategic location where you can easily see it from inside your home. That way, the birds provide free entertainment!

  • Start with a single feeder and fill it with birdseed mix. From there, you can experiment with changing the type of seeds and the location to see which types of birds are attracted.

  • The best foods for birds include sunflower seeds, thistle, nuts, suet, and millet.

  • Do not feed birds bread, since it provides very little nourishment.
Birds remind us of tweets, which remind us of our Twitter account. Be sure to follow WIN on Twitter to stay updated on company news.

Fiber is Coming to Arcadia

Arcadia Map - Download Images to View Despite the cold snap, and the groundhog's prediction, spring will be here before you know it. Along with spring will come the construction equipment in our Arcadia phone exchange. That's right — FIBER IS COMING!

If all goes as planned, we hope to begin installing services in homes this fall and hope to have everyone's fiber services installed before the end of 2021.

For folks who are already our customers, you will still need to sign up for fiber services as we will no longer offer services through our current copper plant once the fiber optic construction is complete. If you sign up right now we will give you $20 off of your internet service of 100Mbps or higher for 1 year! You can sign up online here

You can also stop in our Carroll office at 603 North Adams or call 888-508-2946 and we would be happy to help you in-person or over the phone.  Be sure to sign up today!
