2012-06-26 Thanks to Comcast we will be having an unscheduled service interruption. Calling the service line results in a message that service will be restored by "3:43pm". I am guessing that is some convenient number based on "4 hours from now".
So, I am posting this using the Internet connection from my phone via WiFi Tethering. It's slow, but in emergengies such as this, it is tolerable for a short period.
This underscores my commitment to diversifying the connections provided by Pilot. Adding multiple Internet providers would give us a backup connections in case of outages such as this.
UPDATE: At 1pm service was restored.
