Nothing interesting but a lesson in life perhaps. Would expect a lot more from Canada and any so called first world country.
Living in a big city suburb, Toronto suburb, definitely not rural. Phone service is down on several streets for 5 days and counting. Internet (DSL) is sporadic at best. Somehow internet, presumably because it uses 1 pair of wires not 2 is not 100% affected even though the phone company rep cites the issue as 'water soaked cable, trying to find location of the soaked cable'
Makes very little sense and the downtime length is down right ridiculous.
