Hey, that's great, and I really like Vonage - but any kudos for "still being up" during the hurricane belong to your ISP, not to Vonage. As long as your ISP is providing a solid broadband connection, the fact that you have Vonage service there during the teeth of the hurricane is no more impressive than the fact that I have service here, more than a thousand miles removed from the hurricane. Congrats to your ISP - hope it continues to stay up!

Kudos still need to go to Vonage... At some point Vonage must connect to the public switched telephone network (PSTN). It's my understanding that these Points of Presence (POPs) are located around the various states, often near the area codes that they're servicing. As to how many & where these are located, I'm not sure. I will say that Vonage worked fine in Ft. Myers and Naples all day long. Never even the slightest hiccup there. I've been on the phone with the area for ~16 hrs over the past 2 days. Safe to say that Vonage has already paid for itself with these two days alone.

Well, again, I'm not knocking Vonage, I am a happy customer, but I think what they had to do with regards to Wilma was about exactly zero. Their POP's are located, I'm pretty sure, within their 25 "Regional Data Centers", and the closest one to Wilma today is in Atlanta, GA.

Worked great in Tampa, FL too. Although I would call that much of a hurricane...it moved so fast it didnt do all too much. Plus the eyeball was about 127 miles from Tampa.

Welp, here we are on Wednesday, 2 days after the hurricane. Many phone lines in Ft. Myers that were up during and after the hurricane are now down, as Sprint apparently doesn't have generators at their COs. Lovely. So, my land lines are useless...but my Vonage line is still up & running. If this continues for any length of time, I'll be grabbing a Vonage adapter from CC (probably a WRTP54G) and having Sprint forward the lines at my business to the Vonage adapter. We have power & internet (microwave link) there, but no phone. I just wish Vonage had local #'s in that area.

Lucky you.... Rolling Eyes

ALOT of POTS are still down here also as TPA was saying. I tried calling my parents vacation house here in Stuart and it is a no go...

And DallasFlier, I do understand that the ISP (Adelphia) has alot to do with it, but when the winds are whipping up past 100 mph, then just about everything takes a beating.

I'm just pissed that Sprint doesn't have generators at their COs in this part of FL, where power outages are sometimes a daily occurance (thanks Flicker Power & Light!) They knew the hurricane was coming, so how 'bout shipping in a few mobile generators to keep things running....or did they think that power isn't going to go out in a Category 3 hurricane? I can (mostly) accept utilities going down in a strong hurricane...BUT, when they survive the hurricane, like the phone system here did, then die because their batteries ran flat... I can't accept that. Piss poor planning.

I've been working some of the emergency operations in the area. Many of the shelters lost power during the height of the storm (expected), went to generator, and everything was fine. In many areas, the phones lines held up for a good 12+ hours after the hurricane had hit...then, nothing. So, the only way to communicate from the shelters to HQ is by ham radio, Voip, or smoke signals. Cell towers depend upon the local power & phone system to be working, so they're becoming useless as well. At some of the shelters, power was restored within hours of the hurricane hitting, in others it was less than 36 hrs before power was restored, and I think we would have seen a faster response if the east coast of FL hadn't sustained such severe damage (haven't they ever heard of building codes over there? but I digress..)

That said... the local governments, Red Cross, and state & local emergency officials have their stuff together and are working wonderfully. Less than 10 hrs after the storm, there were already tree trimmers clearing roadways, road crews were deploying portable generators at major intersection traffic signals & portable stop signs at others, water & ice is readily available. KUDOS to the water dept of Ft. Myers who has kept the water flowing and drinkable 100% of the time, saving disaster relief from having to pass out far more water.

and last but not least... .


I feel very honored to have been on the conference call with local officials and FEMA... in particular, when the local officials on the west coast of FL told FEMA to stay the heck out of our area; we'll call them if we need anything. From the mess and other words not fit to print here, this was a VERY good decision. C'mon FEMA, you had two practice runs this year (Katrina & Rita). All they're looking for on the east coast is water, ice, and fuel... and you can't even get that right! How come a group comprised of mostly unpaid volunteers with no emergency management training, a mostly donation-only budget, and a few local officials can pull it off with a battered & failing communication system, and you guys can't with all of the funding and military resources you guys have? Pathetic. Absolutely pathetic. Fire 'em all and give our local guys the money & resources.

Very true...I went out at 7:45 am to Eckerds to get some cold medicine for my wife, and the line for water, ice was alreadys easily 1 mile long...
