Re: Bee attack, fiber cut, 7-hour outage

I'm thinking that getting hit by an auger might put the fiber more into the "mangled" category rather than simply cut.
Anytime you talk about "rural" I'm impressed with 7 hours, however -- isn't SONET supposed to make this better?
SONET... yeah, right. We had a fiber-seeking backhoe take out some fiber in the mid-Willamette Valley recently - it took out long distance for several smaller local phone companies for about that long as well. 911 service for at least some people too. I'm interestedly awaiting the final word on what happened there...
