Service was restored at 9 AM today but it will take another 14 hours at the speed of light for the phone signals to arrive in Blairsville.

Verizon has been out all day in Blairsville.... ATT is still working here... I went to Murphy today and Verizon worked there until I got back into Blairsville ... Must be a problem here though not elsewhere????

we've been out all day too. we were told it was due to the weather, but it was down about 3 hours before the storms hit. So whatever the cause is, must be west of georgia.

i left my wife and son to see how they are and to let them know that these storms haven't hurt me. but i'm stuck stealing internet from almost an acre away at 1Mbps. can't even skype. so lonely :-(

I live in Suches and we dont have service here either. I sure hope they fixing thier mistake on my bill. I only have a cell, so I have no way to reach anyone, and most people I know use verizon. there a big company they shouldve already had this fixed. emc works faster than they do

I am a retired cell phone exec and I would NOT want to be in Engineering with Verizon right now! Total outage is "almost" impossible. Everything has a redundant back-up in place for failures...

Towers have been knocked out due to storms west of us. No telling when power will be restored. What did you do before cell phones? LOL Remember?
