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.
Customers providing their own modem for Internet service will still need to schedule an installation.
A cable modem is required to use MCTV’s High Speed Internet service. We believe the modem is an integral part of the service so we provide one free of charge. Many companies charge a monthly fee for cable modem equipment. MCTV does not.
MCTV provides a cable modem at no extra charge to all Internet customers. Providing equipment gives us much better insight into how the network and your service is performing and ensures that no harm comes to the network through use of external modems. We also provide free replacement, service and upgrades for MCTV-provided modems.
You can purchase and use your own modem. If you do, it is important to remember that you will be responsible for the repair, maintenance and replacement of the modem if it fails.
If you use your own modem and experience in-home problems, MCTV will not attempt to repair your modem. Instead, MCTV will provide an MCTV modem until you are able to repair or replace your own modem. You may, of course, choose to continue to use the MCTV-provided modem at no charge. Read more about customer-owned modems and approved modems.

MCTV does not lock customers into a certain speed so you can change your service level at any time. To upgrade your Internet speed, call us at 330-833-4134/330-345-8114. 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.

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.
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.
