Sun Transit Period for Winter 2017

As many of you are probably aware, we are approaching the sun transit period for winter 2017.

This is the time of the year where for a short period in the afternoon, the sun, the satellite and our satellite dish will be in aligned for a few minutes. During this time, radio emission from solar radiation will cause enough interference with the signal from the satellite to interrupt the Internet service. This year, the sun transit period will begin on February 28 and end on March 2. We will see a service degradation as early as 1:02 PM up to 1:10 PM.
