Pat Baleme: THANKS for the info! Any idea when it (fiber optic or whatever) may be fixed?…. Problems continue where we are all day & evening thus far (below Garberville). We have 2 different phone numbers. Nice to know it isn’t just us . Even using cell phone, Verizon’s line is busy, but I heard they blamed AT&T and vice-versa? The run-around today.
