Smooth week here, but someone cut the fiber going into my island cutting out internet for about 60 miles of islands here for about 12 hours so that was a little annoying

That shows about the distance of fiber that was cut from the mainland - knocked out all providers and cellular was also veryy slow I’m guessing due to over saturation of everyone using it.

ahhh the keys makes sense. But also that SUCKS. how long does it usually take to restore?

Never had this happen before in the 5+ years i’ve lived here. Not much to reroute as there’s only one way in/out of here 🙂
