Wow, took that long for a repair?  After 1.5 days of no Internet I am afraid I would be going through withdrawals.  smiley

No phone, cable, or internet---ahh the benefits of Optimum's Triple-Play Service package. Crazy thing was that once the transformer blew, it created a small fire. The fire dept and police came and sealed-off the area but when I went outside to see what was going on, there was still a small fire dripping with melted plastic/rubber. When I asked them why they were just watching that fire, the firemen said they could not put it the fire out because "it was an electric fire and we can't touch them."

Oh OK. Well I HAD all my services after the transformer blew but lost it because the fire eventually caught up with my cable connection after about a 1/2 of that slow burn.

Unbelieveable. I should have just walked out there with my kitchen fire extinguisher and save myself about 10 phone calls and a big headache the next day.
