Yep, it happened again this morning. Right around 6:45, after I’d done my mediation, stretching, looked at email and fed the cat… just as I got ready to start writing here my net connection went down.
So I went through the goat dance of calling Cox cable. This time the digital phone worked, and I was using that when the CS guy reset the modem from his office. Which meant digging out the cell phone.
Anyway, after up leveling to a supervisor and being told a service tech might make it today, but tomorrow afternoon was more likely, I unplugged the phone, the modem, turned off the computer and did some housework.
We’ll never know if turning everything off for 10 minutes or so did the trick or it it all started again because 45 minutes had passed.
Anyway, my first web stop was at ATT to get new phone service and new net connection service. All on the web, which is nice, plus the promise of cash back and a savings of maybe $20 a month. I really wish I had a local business I could use for this. What happened to anti-trust?
I don’t think we’ll ever know what’s been wrong. The last tech did mutter about too much radio frequency in the air, which strikes me as a real possibility, but I don’t have a clue, not really.
Hoping this change will all be as transparent as I’ve been promised.
