Today at 7:30AM at our company, my dispatcher called me from her personal cell phone. This in itself was strange so I was prepared for some type of issue. She explained that our phone service was out at the office & she was working on a solution. She just wanted me to know that she was leaving the answering service on the client lines and they were going to call her on her cell phone until she found a way to get the phones restore. At 8:30 she called back & let me know the phone company rep found the issue: someone had dug up approx 200 feet of main phone cable along the main highway and stole it. All business clients on the highway were without service including internet service as our T1 line was part of the bundeled cable that was stolen. The girls are handeling the office on their personal cell phones and communicating with the tech's on direct connect our busiess goes on. What is going on in our city when someone digs up 200 feet of cable along side a 6 lane divided highway and not one even notices? Why would a person take such a chance? Is this a reflection on our economy or on our culture?
