It appears from the responses I’m getting that folks over on the Bronson side of town are still without phone service.
Based on prior experience as well as the lessons of this outage, I encourage all of you without service to CALL FAIRPOINT EARLY AND OFTEN.
Do not (now, or in the future) assume others will call and that will get it fixed. Fairpoint bases the speed and priority of their response on the volume of calls they get. There are so few people in Landaff that it takes all of us just to get their attention, and sometimes that isn’t quite enough.
So find a way to call. Those of us south of Cemetery seem to have phones now so call from a friend’s house, from Town Hall if it’s open, from whatever phone you have access to in Lisbon, Littleton, or wherever. If you have a cell phone there’s usually a good signal at the top of Jockey Hill Road, across or downhill from Clements’ house. If you have Internet you can report online, though they don’t respond at all or only on the phone so you won’t know whether that report was received or noticed.
Having a recent phone bill with you simplifies the process a bit as you can read the numbers to them to prove your identity.
Fairpoint’s Customer Service number is 1.866.984.1611.
