Do you have internet service through Zito Media (formerly

Galaxy Cable)? Are you having trouble connecting or getting

kicked offline? Several residents report this problem. If you're

one of them, please call customer service at 800-365-6988

and impress upon the agent that they need to report your

name and address (probably account number also) to

Nick the night manager. The more people that call in

the better. You may have good TV reception but your internet

uses a different signal. Please call!
