In case you're wondering like i was yesterday why that call or text hasn't come. You might have to go to plan B.

This is one of the downsides of burying utilities. The wires are damaged less, but when they do it takes 2-7x as long to repair versus overhead with the same issue.

Also, service was restored late Friday night.

And a fiber line can have hundreds of fiber lines and each needs to be reconnected. That takes time once they get to it. Large fines and backup routes are what is needed.

And I have not heard you on the repeater systems here yet. Congratulations on becoming a HAM. Mobile phone

I guess "call before you dig" doesn't apply to the big boys.

It’s been inconvenient, for sure. Fortunately, I have WiFi at home and at Pop’s. My mom called me at work today because I wasn’t getting her texts and calls. Naturally, if I don’t respond, she thinks I’ve been murdered. smiley

As a parent I fully understand your Moms thinking.

My service is through AT&T and has been off both Friday and Saturday but been restored during the evenings. Roughly 12 hours on, 12 hours off. Fingers crossed they get it fixed soon but it has been fun watching g the kids try to figure out what to do without their phones.

Yep. I was always "dead in a ditch" if I didn't respond.
