Both Channels Are Temporarily Off-Air

We are currently in a transition period, where the frequency settings are changing in both the North American and European coverage areas. More details can be found here. These are the steps to restarting the service.

  1. Finalize new lease with operator
  2. Remove old, faulty equipment from teleport
  3. Send new equipment to teleport
  4. Bring up new carrier

The process is the same for both beams. I will update this thread when the North American beam is turned off. I expect this entire process to take three weeks. Most of the delay is related to shipping. Even FedEx International Priority goes only so fast.

Sorry about the inconvenience.


I see that files are coming down. Is it stable or still under construction?

i think it’s still under construction, the new beam will be on a different frequency.

Was this announcement pushed on the Othernet stream in some form? I’m curious about future developments. I can foresee a scenario where Othernet itself might be the only form of data stream (remote areas). Be sure to include a mechanism now/future for sending these future updates on the old stream with instructions on how to find the new stream. Just my two cents.
