Got the snip

Cable snip

I've been waiting for the diggers outside to cut through the phone cable in the road for two days now. Today afternoon it happened and here is the evidence.

The Chorus techies are working on it as we speak, and expect the cable to be repaired within an hour. Everyone's been really professional and fast, including Orcon, my LLU provider.

Still, wish it hadn't happened as I have deadline deadliness to deal with but I guess if you have to dig up the road repeatedly, cable breaks are inevitable.

Thank goodness I have a Vodafone 3G connection as a backup.
