Another One Gone?

St. Joe has been hit with storm after storm. Many of the locals around here that live out in the boonies have been complaining that their ISP's have been down for days, and they don't even live close to St. Joe. While some of the power lines may be back up there still could be trouble with data lines and such. I know some of the repair work on the power lines has been of the temporary patchwork nature, but the datalinks require a quality connection to transmit digital data over long distances.

A buddy of mine up in Iowa had to upgrade his phone lines over about a quarter mile out to the pole just to get DSL, and even with that he only has one choice for an ISP. They go down and he is blacked out.
