We check the U-verse availability site at least once a week. So far, negative describes our status.
We had a storm yesterday that was almost strong enough to take the door out of my hands when I peeked out. We lost cable service during the battering and I called Comcast to report the outage. An appointment was set up for today. We suffered a spontaneous, miracle cable-cure about 5:30 or 6 p.m. So I called back to let Comcast know we were up and running. They were supposed to cancel the service call.
This morning, a giant spool of cable, which was towed by a Comcast truck, parked in our swale. It was a coincidental visit to repair a sagging cable which runs along our back fence.
Yes, Comcast, you can enter our back yard. Yes, Comcast, you can trim the Bougainvillea which has grown up, over the sagging cable and overhangs our yard. The roots originate in a neighbor's yard and J has been meaning to cut it back from our side.
Bougainvillea is nasty with thorns and the Comcast person used a chain saw on it. This was overkill but allowed him to avoid close contact. Nobody wants a hug from a Bougainvillea.
The final result was that we will receive a refund for the Comcast service-time lost and also received some free yard work.
I wonder if U-verse can top that . . .
