Fiber + Backhoe = Bad
Soooo we get a call from a customer that their link dropped. Upon further investigation, their fiber runs back to a local university and then jumps to their location. A little more digging shows that the city was installing a fire hydrant along that line. A quick call to the city yields us the information that “We hit the conduit, but you should be ok.” Once we get it dug up, the conduit is busted and our fiber is CRUSHED.
