Supposedly Big Bend Telephone is upgrading the system down here. Its supposed to be more stable, faster and hopefully handle the higher load? Anyway around 2:00 PM yesterday the phones and DSL in the whole area went out and the phones didn't come back up until around 6:00 I guess. The phone and DSL came back up at the legion about then, but only the phone came back up here. (No DSL) I must have rebooted the modem a dozen times last night trying to get it up with no luck. I figured it might be up this morning and the same thing. (No DSL) at least the phone does work.
I called BBT and it actually didn't take long to talk to a tech and she was probably the best tech I've ever talked to about anything. (Spoke clearly, very professional (but actually listened to me) and did all she could to get me back on line.) Unfortunately not though and I'm stuck around here waiting on a higher level of tech to do what they can. They may have to come here, but personally I think its the lousy modems they have now. Some times I have had to reboot it several times just to get online.
At least I didn't do away with the WiFi setup so I do have the legion connection to fall back on.
