Are you interested in WIFI High Speed Internet in your unit?
The current options are the following:
– Clubhouse use: The Clubhouse currently offers WIFI high Speed internet through the HOA. In order to use the internet, you will need to visit the Clubhouse during open hours (10:00am to 10:00pm) and use it either when sitting on the benches with your laptop next to the swimming pool or go upstairs and sit in the hallway (the upstairs clubhouse is always locked). The furniture located in the hallway are not very comfortable and one of the chairs is ripped.

The subject of complex-wide WIFI internet comes up regularly at meetings but the HOA representative have not been interested in researching it further. If you would like to have WIFI in your unit at a very reasonable cost and perhaps even without additional cost (the current monthly dues may be able to cover it), please contact your HOA representative and request that this discussion be put on the next meeting’s agenda. Cobianet’s sales representative would be happy to present their products and provide a quote.
