Black Friday Special
So, the boss kinda loses his mind to the Holiday Spirit every year. He’s feeling jolly, generous, and we’re half expecting to see him walk through the office in a Santa Claus suit. So, in the spirit of Black Friday (we are an internet company, after all), LV.Net is offering to waive the installation fee on our HomeNet and BizNet packages, for new service quoted in the month of November, 2018.
Yes, you read that right.
NO INSTALLATION FEE in the month of November.
Same great service, no hidden fees or taxes, no sudden fee changes and NO Data Caps.

What does the term 'Wi-Fi' Stand for?
Trick question! It doesn't stand for anything. It is not an acronym and it is not in the dictionary.
The founding members of the Wireless Ethernet Compatibility Alliance which is now called the “Wi-Fi Alliance”, actually hired Interbrand, a global brand consulting agency, to come up with the name and logo that they could use for an interoperability seal and marketing effort.

What's the difference between Wireless vs WiFi?
While the terms “wireless” and “Wi-Fi” are often used synonymously, there is a big difference in the technical world.
Wi-Fi is a protocol (digital language) that is used to create a short range wireless connection to a wireline broadband connection, similar to that of a cordless phone connection to a home landline connection (or base). A router with wireless capability interacts similarly by connecting a device with Wi-Fi capability (your laptop, phone, tablet, etc) to a wired broadband connection. One would use Wi-Fi at home, at a library, or at a coffee shop. Devices such as laptops, phones, televisions, and even
What is a 404 Error?
Have you ever been browsing the web and come across the unhelpful page that says “404 Error: Page not found?” While this page seems unnecessary, it actually has value.
