Jefferson Telecom offering Streaming 101 class

Jefferson Telecom is offering a class for customers who haven’t yet jumped on the streaming bandwagon. Many are not familiar with the term, streaming, yet hear others talk about the latest shows on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime Video. Streaming is content sent in compressed form in a continuous stream over the Internet and played as it arrives. The user does not have to wait to download a file to play it.

Jefferson Telecom chief operating officer Jamie Daubendiek said, “Jefferson Telecom recognizes that customers want to watch video content when it works for them on any device. We want to assist in educating our community on the choices that are available when it comes to streaming and prepare those that are new to the concept to gain a comfort level to start streaming.”

Customers can learn more about how to start streaming at their home with a free class Thursday, March 14, at 2 pm at the conference room at Jefferson Telecom, 105 W. Harrison S, Jefferson. Jefferson Telecom staff will share what is needed to start streaming. Participants will learn about the popular streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, and WatchTVEverywhere. Streaming devices, as well as what Internet speed is best for streaming will be discussed.

Registration is necessary as class size is limited. Interested persons can call 515-386-4141, option #4 or email info [at] jeffersontelecom [dot] com to register. One participant will win their choice of a Roku Stick or a free Internet upgrade for three months.
