Phones out after storm?

Paul writes: Are there a lot of telephones in C’ville out after that storm last night? I called Sprint from work this morning and someone said their computers were out, so she’d write my info on a scrap of paper and they “were telling everyone that hopefully someone will be out to check on it by end of business tomorrow.” The “service representative” said that she had no way of knowing if a lot of phones were out because the computer was down. She wasn’t local because she didn’t know there had been a storm.

Of course, if people’s phones are down, they can’t dial out to the Internet to post to cvillenews.com…

    They could be using the wireless internet up on Carter’s Mountain, or wherever it’s based from.

  • ok, technogeek. Put that in lay-terms

  • There’s a company called R-Comm that provides wireless internet to a 20 mile radius around Carter’s Mountain. Because it’s wireless, it has no reliance on phone lines, so it’ll work whether the phones do or not.
