    My thoughts are to call your provider at the time it's down.
    They may tell you it's some sort of maintenance that they do at night to lessen the problems with consumers?

    I've had that happen a few times, but much later into the night. It's probably maintenance on the system.

    I'm in Jacksonville, FL and have had these drop outs on a regular basis for the past month or so. Many of my customers also have T1's from Bellsouth that have been dropping. I am told that this is all due to the AT&T acquisition of Bellsouth/Cingular, and ongoing transitioning. It is frustrating, no doubt, but I am hopeful it will be much better EDGE coverage here in Jax once complete. The coverage is spotty for me between Jax and St. Augustine, especially around the CR 210 corridor. I've complained on numerous occasions to Cingular to no avail. . .they need a new tower in the area - lot's of business growth and very low signal. Have also had trouble for business customers in the same area to get business class DSL from Bellsouth. There are many small business owners in this area that want business class service in their office suites and/or homes but can't get even the 6MB service from Bellsouth. Many have gone to other providers. I've got a lot of egg on my face from this. . .Bellsouth had been promising the service last fall (2006) but never delivered. . .

    There are such things as data outages -- call your carrier to verify.

    Louisiana has a lot of data drop outs and sim rejects.. ATT Knows and some call takers admit it but the network guys are working on the problems... It SUCKS for my folks who have ATT
