Where cell service can only be had from AT&T and accordingly a place low on the totem pole of repair priorities, our cell phones have been unable to access the network for almost 30 hours at this point. 30 hours. If we lived in NYC or ATL or DC and there were a 30 hour outage someone would lose their job. But because we live in a rural area and AT&T doesn’t appear to prioritize service to such areas, we’re left without recourse.
This provokes a good bit of unpleasant feelings for AT&T in particular and monopolies in general. A LOT of unpleasant feelings (bordering on contempt).
I’ve got news for AT&T and other mega corps- #RuralLivesMatter. And we remember.
