If having reliable internet is important to you, do not buy or rent in the AVE, internet is provided by DirecPATH through an exclusive agreement with the HOA, you cannot get your own ISP, you have to use DirecPATH, the internet goes out several times daily, and they refuse to send a technician or repair it. I have been told by a Concierge the internet always goes out when it rains, also they are using very old switches and routers, that have to reboot everyday and you loose your connection when this happens for up to 20 minutes at a time, sometimes this happens multiple times a day. The HOA will blame your equipment in your condo and DirecPATH will blame the HOA. Its a nice place to live with wonderful views, but if internet is important for work, or you stream video, use VOIP or play online games, you will be very disappointed and frustrated.
This is so sad. On GoogleFiber's site, it lists AVE as a property on track to be installed with their service. Has there been any talk about it?
I'm moving in next week and work from home... you have me scared :X
There have been rumors, but nothing specific yet.
Hey David, I guess there were some big problems last week up till this afternoon with the internet? I was told today technicians were onsite fixing the problem. Have you heard them say that before? Do you know if anything got fixed today? Just wondering.
I was considering this place but also work from home. Could either of you let me know if the internet is really a problem there?
The internet isn’t too bad in my opinion. Google Fiber is installed now and you can sign up. Of course, the costs is on you until the DirectPath contract runs out. I think in 2020.
I came by the Avenue on Sunday just to take a look, but I was quickly discouraged by the less than professional greeting by the condescending young lady serving as concierge. She sadly mistook my casual dress as an indication of my socioeconomic status. A lesson she should know by now is that the most successful people often camouflage themselves to avoid needless hangers on ( or leeches ). I can easily afford any unit in the bloody building, or for that matter the entire building. On Sunday evening, I had to fight that petty desire to put an offer in on the building just make her unemployed. But, rationality prevailed in the end, and I will just be avoiding this building. Based upon the comments here, though some are dated that is a sound decision.
