On Thursday, April 26, the local land line provider in Eastsound, WA 98245 (CenturyLink) had an equipment failure at their central hub and all phone service was lost, including all cell phone networks. I suppose this means that CenturyLink provides the backhaul for the wireless providers. Service was fully restored after about 12 hours but the Sprint signal has never come back. All the other cell companies are back online.
I live about 2.5 miles from the tower, within line-of-sight, and used to have a 4-bar EV signal. Now all I have is a 3-bar EV roaming signal. When I'm not on a wireless Internet connection, I have no data access. I have updated the network profile and PRL and nothing changes.
I don't like this situation but I don't know how else to report this problem.
