A common scam through emails is a phishing scam. Phishing is where someone sends you an email claiming to be from a business, asking you to reply with your username and password or other private or secure information.
We will never send you an unsolicited email asking you for these details, and you should never respond to these emails, please just delete them.
When a phishing attempt like this occurs, we quickly take steps to try and block any more of the emails entering our system, and also block any attempts to reply to the emails. MCSNet's outgoing servers have a good sending reputation, and spammers and scammers would like to take advantage of that.
When speeds are a concern, use a cable instead of Wi-Fi.
A cabled connection will provide more bandwidth, better latency, and improved reliability. Wi-Fi may be convenient for avoiding the cabling setup, but if you plan to stay in your current residence for a length of time, it may be worth it to get a cable or two run to endow the best experience through your local network.
