Still cut off
Beyond the 24-hour mark now, and still no one knows when the cable will be back up. (And, of course, it's too late to switch to DSL, were I so inclined, until the middle of next week.)
This is less of an issue for me than it is for people who have put all their eggs television, Internet and telephone in a single basket, but it's still a major annoyance, and the resulting correspondence will not be pretty.

What a drag Charles :( So sorry. It is curious that there is "nothing to report" on their status page. And that I a mere mile and a half away have full service (knock on wood).
It's not, I believe, a network outage; I think they have an actual broken line somewhere and they can't find it.
(Alternative, possibly even
better worse explanation: somebody else broke the line and isn't around to answer questions and won't be back until the 27th or so.)
Weird. Mine didn't go down.
The current story is that this area was just upgraded, and I suppose having bandwidth is considered a deficiency which must be corrected.
Someone is supposed to be out here tomorrow to examine the lines and such.
