Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
Yeah, but a fiber-optic repeater is a commodity, even if newer ones are somewhat better they are backwards compatible. And there will be hundreds installed even in Mountain Home, pop. ~15,000. There are some (relatively minor) costs you have to pay for greater reliability. Cable companies don't have to pay it.

As the Dutch said while fighting the Spanish: "It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere." (But it helps!)
