Another storm — another Frontier outage

Yesterday internet and DSL were out all day and if finally came back on in the evening, only to go out again around 7:30 am this morning.   Friday night was one of the worst wind storms we’ve had in a while, so I wasn’t too surprised about the outage yesterday.   Maybe they’re still fixing stuff today.
