[Services] Earthlink DSL down for 4 days Washington, DC area

Bad thunderstorms 4 days ago caused major problems in the Washington, DC, including DSL outages for Earthlink and, presumably, Verizon, the major provider Earthlink works with. I no longer have a landline, but I've been using Bluetooth dialup with my cellphone. Weird, but doesn't seem as slow as landline dialup (that I can remember from so long ago).

Did you sign up for the stand alone DSL Earthlink used to offer in Verizon territories or do you have Earthlink DSL that was installed to a POTS line that you recently canceled the POTS part? There is a huge difference in the two types of setups.

OK, Cool. That is what you need when you no longer have a POTS line.

Have you opened a ticket with Earthlink yet? It's unlikely they'll notice this and fix it without you letting them know.
