So, for the past 5 days the good line-men from not only the internet company, but all telecom, TV, power and whatnot have descended upon our street and tore apart the cable-chaos and then slowly rebuild it from scratch
I am actually pretty much in awe with the concerted effort, the night and day work and how little of actual outage we had (ok, for a while I had to rely on the shared 3G of my phone, but that was ok, since we were warned in advance)
There was no news of electrical fire, work accidents, or people’s play stations blowing up thanks to power spikes. A technician came yesterday to our house to personally oversee that our internet was back.
We still had a power out last night during dinner, but quickly spotted an emergency team riding around to find and fix the issue.
