This Monday 7/26/10, as I read online about the Manhattan Verizon landline outage, I decided to check my own home phone. Lo and behold, no dial tone. When I called about it, the recording told me that there was a service outage and that it would not be up until late Thursday night! This was confirmed by an agent. Does anybody else know about this here in New Jersey? The exchange is 732-695. So far I have found nothing on the news about an NJ outage. This seems sudden and severe and I would like to know why it will take 4 days. TIA.
update: as of today the fix date was pushed out to Tuesday, 8/3 at 11 pm! That would make the outage over a week. Support said something about a cable outage, but wouldn't say how many people were affected. This seems like a major outage and I am surprised not to see anything about it.
