- How do I retro-fit an existing meetinghouse for high-speed Internet?
- There are myriad ways to retro-fit existing meetinghouses. The best solution will be based largely on what you are trying to achieve and what type of meetinghouse you have. In the near future we hope to have general best practices posted for all meetinghouses and specific recommendations posted for the most common types of meetinghouses. In the meantime, contact the Global Service Desk to consult with a support representative or to schedule time with a meetinghouse technology engineer.
