I know exactly what the problem is--THEY DON'T MAINTAIN THEIR LINES! This is why my power goes out on an almost daily basis.

Everyone needs to sue PPL for a refund of their maintenance fees as we obviously aren't getting what we're paying for.

Of course with PPL having PUC on the payroll, I'm sure they will find a "friendly, suddenly fat walleted judge" if it were to come to a lawsuit.

PPL is an Umbrella company that controls others power and utility companies. Its like a legal monopoly. Allentown and the people of Allentown should run PPL out and find a better company.
