Re: Georgia ETA..??

So I asked in the direct forum about an update to my area. Today a tech comes to the house for some reason but unfortunately I'm in FL and wasn't really expecting a tech visit, so my dad told them the only issue we have is the peek time slowdowns. Well he tested the line at the DMARC and then persumeably to the DSLAM then he came back and explained that it was a latency outage (No Shit) anyways no was online or had any reason to be online till well after the tech left but I get a phone call because the internet was down after some over the phone trouble shooting turns out the modem can no long establish a PPP connection..

TL;DR

Checked on status of Peaktime slowdowns
Tech Get scheduled to visit, unknowingly to me.
Tech manages to kill the whole connection.
No internet for at least the night.

Should be called a legacy outage, equipment so old you only get legacy packets and not many of those.

Well they got back to me in direct, apparently me asking for an update to a known outage caused some tech somewhere to look at my line and change some setting that now only allows PPPoE connections, I have been using PPPoA (or PPPoE at will) for years and it worked great until someone made a change that would have no damn positive effect on my service and of course I'm out of town until 2/7.

I think we should start calling it a "latency outrage".
