ImOn Covid Update

At ImOn, we are starting to feel hopeful for an eventual end to the COVID-19 pandemic as vaccinations begin. ImOn safety protocols will continue to keep our employees, customers, and our community safe and healthy as we wait for vaccinations to be widely distributed and infection rates to decrease. Following is a brief update of our operations status along with some reminders.

ImOn has restarted cable TV and phone installations for customers who are comfortable with it; these had been temporarily suspended because they require in-home presence from our technicians. If you are interested in adding cable TV or telephone service, please be aware we will ask you whether you or anyone in your home has been exposed to or is exhibiting any symptoms from COVID-19 prior to scheduling your install — if so, we will ask you to call back in 10 days to schedule. We will also ask anyone in the home to social distance during the installation, preferably in a separate room from where our technician is working. Our technicians will of course wear appropriate PPE and practice social distancing during your installation.

ImOn's walk-in customer care office remains closed and we are currently not offering curbside customer care due to the cold weather. ImOn plans to reassess opening curbside customer care when it's safe and comfortable for our customers and employees.

If you need to return ImOn equipment, we have provided a cart in the lobby of our building at 101 3rd Ave SW in Cedar Rapids. You can leave your equipment on the cart and our employees will pick it up frequently throughout the day. The labels on the equipment will let us know which account to credit the equipment to. Make sure you also return power cords and remotes that may go with the equipment.

Payments can still be dropped off in the locked drop box by the front entrance to the building. For more information about all of the available payment methods ImOn offers, please click here.

Thank you for your patience during this challenging time. We appreciate your business and pledge to keep you informed of any changes to the above.
February ImOn Calendar Photo

This photo was submitted by Bret Snyder and shows a wintery morning along the Cedar River in downtown Cedar Rapids. This view will soon look a little different. Quaker Oats is removing the old red neon Quaker Oats sign from the top of its building due to damage sustained during the August derecho. The company will be replacing the sign with a new, more modern LED sign, expected to be completed by this summer.

The FREE 2020-2021 Customer Calendar is still available for customers to pick up in the lobby of ImOn's headquarters at 101 3rd Avenue SW.

These days, the Internet has become our primary source for information and entertainment. And over the last year, due to COVID-19, it has even become an important part of how we access work and attend school. So, it only makes sense that a reliable Internet connection is a necessity in your home.

There are two ways you can access the Internet. The first is by using an Ethernet cable to connect your device directly to your modem. This wired connection offers a reliable performance with faster speeds and more security. However, being tethered to one spot is not always convenient. That's why most people use a router to connect to the Internet through a Wi-Fi signal.

However, there are some draw backs to using a wireless Internet connection. Unlike a wired connection, there are several different things that can affect the strength and reliability of your Wi-Fi signal. Also, one of the limitations of using a Wi-Fi signal is how far it can reach. That's because the signal strength and bandwidth decrease as you get further away from your router. This can lead to spotty coverage in certain areas of your home. So, it's important to consider where you put our router in your home to help maximize the coverage area of your Wi-Fi signal. Here are a few helpful tips to consider.
