I live in Cutten and my Suddenlink cable internet went belly-up
a result of the cable bing cut. I have two questions:
- Was Fortuna/Eureka/Arcata SBC DSL also out of commission?
- What is Rio Dell's redundant path, eg, is it a microwave link to some
place upstream of where the cable was cut? The Access Humboldt site is
specific about the hardware mechanism involved.
