Maybe there is some light at the end of the tunnel. DEM is reporting the following:
CenturyLink is reporting a restoration of limited land line long distance service as of 7:45pm on 11/8. This restoration is result of a temporary fix, and bandwidth is limited. Many calls may still have a hard time going through. Be patient, and try again if you are unable to connect.
Now would probably be a good time to hold off on any non-essential calls until initial rush passes.
We would fully expect there to be occasional set backs and technical complications in days to come. Hopefully overall trend is towards improved capability.
Thanks to everyone who has worked so hard on repair efforts, and most of all: thanks to all for community's patience and cooperative spirit. As always, a pleasure to witness, despite the struggles.We've tried it, and it works (for now). We'd appreciate hearing if it is working elsewhere. Can you call the mainland? Do you have internet?
