Nope! Just got the update from the service tech/repair guru(The guy was seriously cool!) It was indeed a problem on the telco’s end. Some schlub went monkeying around in the service box that held our pair and must have been all thumbs. I believe the term The Guy(Yes, capitalized. You’ll know why in a mo…) was about ready to use was “cluster-fucked”. He stopped himself at about the “fuh” and then remembered he was talking to a customer(yours truly) I said, “The red-headed love child between a bird’s nest and a bowl of spaghetti?” At least I managed to give him a chuckle since he was mucking about in pissing rains so that I could resume calling Miss Cleo!
The cool thing was that because of the mess that our lines were(Went down the street, behind the church, across the CVS and terminated in a box behind another shopping center. All in all about 1200-1500 feet of cabling that didn’t need to exist) he moved out our line from the old box and rerouted them to a service junction that is at the end of our fairly short street. Since we’re on DSL, a shorter route to the terminal means faster service! I might finally get the speed I’m paying for! WOOOO-HOOOO!
All in all, not a horrible experience. Crappy day averted!(So far…)
