Can I install the cable modem myself?

No, we do not allow self-installations for our services. When our installers visit your home, they will make sure everything is installed properly and that the modem is receiving the correct signal levels.

Can I purchase a cable modem from MCTV or use my own modem?

No. Our modems are leased to you for the time that you have your service and the modem rental price is built in to the monthly fee. This means that MCTV will maintain and service the modem for as long as your have service from us.

Can I set up a web, mail or FTP server?

The installation of a web domain, mail or FTP server(s) is expressly prohibited in our Subscriber Agreement and may result in the immediate termination of an account. Mail servers can be installed with a static IP address. Contact our Business Services department at 330-833-4134/330-345-8114 for details.

Depending on your current service level and the equipment in your home, upgrading may be as simple as a phone call. In some cases, we will need to install a new modem in your home.

How can I check my @sssnet email?

There are several ways to check your email. Any program that supports POP3 can be used to check your @sssnet.com email.

Many devices come pre-installed with an email program that can easily be set up to work with your @sssnet.com email. Other free programs include Windows Essential (formerly Windows Live Mail), Mac Mail and Thunderbird. Depending on the device and program, you can create address books, file messages and customize your email signature. Customers are encouraged to do their own research before installing any program on their device.

I'm not receiving new emails. What's wrong?

There are a few reasons why you aren’t receiving new emails. It’s possible that your inbox is full or an anti-virus program is blocking the email from coming through. It’s best that you call our offices at 330-833-4134/330-345-8114 so we can investigate it on our end. 

My Internet isn't working. What should I do?

Before calling our office, you can try rebooting your modem and/or wireless router. To reset the equipment, unplug it from the power source for about 20 seconds and plug it back in. It may take several minutes to completely reboot so be patient!

If you have a wireless router, reset your modem first and then reset your wireless router.

If this does not solve the problem or you are unable to reboot the equipment, call our office at 330-833-4134/330-345-8114.

During normal office hours, your call will be answered by one of our representatives and we will get someone to your home as soon as possible-usually that very same day. If it is after hours, your call will be recorded and returned the following day. Please make sure to leave your name, address and phone number when leaving a message.
