Storm Recovery

First off I'd like to point out that folks on our fiber network have experienced no problems at all. They have been seeing hundreds of megabits per second of service and have been entirely uninterrupted. If you want gigabit fiber to your home (and vastly more reliable service at a price similar to what you are paying now), please don't hesitate to come out and support us at City Hall on Sept 9 @ 6:30 PM.

We've been putting in a lot of hours the past two days and are now within striking distance of getting our network squared away.

We ended up losing 2 tower sectors to lightning, one at 1800 Kasold and another at 11th & Mass. In addition, we had two pieces of equipment damaged in a way that caused them to flood our network with traffic. This is what has been causing flaky service near 23rd & Kasold, 19th & Mass and 23rd & Haskel.

We had substantial damage to our equipment at Poehler Lofts as well, but have just about squared that site away as well.

We are now down to chasing street level sites. We are hoping to have all of these up and running by late this evening.

We are planing on starting on single family homes some time tomorrow. Lionell will be contacting folks and working out dates and times.
