So Very Angry, Indeed
Over the weekend it started dropping out again. On Sunday, 6 times in 4 hours.
Bell sent yet another technician over Sunday afternoon and we played around with a few options, but he was adamant that it was a bad internal wire. So I hauled the modem and the router back into the basement and he installed a new jack and wire adjacent to the entry point of the phone wire and we were back in business.
Not an hour after he left the connection failed again!
I am now done with Bell. I have contacted my ISP and we'll be going over to internet on cable. Once that is setup, phone service will switch over to Voice on the internet and eventually the satellite service will get switched to cable.
3 service guys all come in and come up with 3 different diagnosis, none of which actually fix the problem. And the real kicker is that none them would consider looking at what I believe the issue to be. The underground wire outside, that I suspect was nicked when some drainage work was done here 2 months ago just before this all started.
It's almost as annoying as being disintegrated.
