ANNOUNCEMENTS

 

Spectrum/Charter Internet/Cable

Spectrum salesmen are now working on PHASE 2  – Route 43, north of Brodie Mtn. Road to the town border.  If a salesman stops by your house when you are not home and leaves a business card – please call the number on the business card – DO NOT CALL the 800 number.  Every address is assigned to a salesman.

If you are having issues with your newly installed Spectrum – because of all the different zip codes the Town has – DO NOT CALL the 800 number – please call your Spectrum Salesman.

Spectrum representatives have specific addresses assigned to them and will only approach the homes currently assigned to them.  They will be wearing Spectrum Badges around their necks and will be driving their personal vehicles.   COVID protocols will be followed.  As they continue connecting residents more homes will be available for their Team to speak with residents.  They move in this manner to keep installations efficient and to reduce times between signing up and installation completion.  More than one attempt to reach customers will be made. If you are going to be out of town for any length of time, please call the Town Hall so we can notify Spectrum and they can make arrangements to get back to you. Spectrum asks for everyone’s patience and looks forward to servicing the Town of Hancock.

Hancock is a quiet, peaceful town about twenty miles long and three miles wide, bordered on the east by the famous Berkshire hills, and on the west by the rugged Taconic range.  

Hancock is the longest and narrowest town in Berkshire County.  The northern portion of the town is separated from the southern portion by a mountain.  One has to drive through a couple of towns to the east or drive west into New York to get from one end to the other.
