Just realized we have no AT&T cell service in the Cotton Valley area. Have full signal bars but get the "service unavailable" message when we try to make a call. (td)

Anyone else?

Reception at my place on the south shore has been awful to non-existent the last few weeks!

I'm using my cell at the Buccaneer and "knock wood" haven't had any problem.

At the Buccaneer you would connect to Princess.
East End is the tower on top of Cotton Valley, which has had its copper ground wires stolen....and was hit hard by lighting last Monday.
Broadband VI had to replace a bunch of gear at East End, it is all repaired and operating normally.

I hope that police reports are being filed on all of these stolen copper ground wires. Who buys scrap copper on this island? It can't be many folks They need to be shut down!!!! Remember that the HUGE historic copper was stolen from Whim Plantation too.

The biggest problem for a thief is usually what to do with your stuff after they've stolen it. That doesn't seem to be much of a problem on this island. Kids and punks may be doing most of the stealing but it's probably not kids and punks that are fencing the goods. Take out the SOB's that are buying the copper, and the kids will stop stealing the copper. The same goes for gold, silver, cell phones, computers, on and on...

What's needed a is little good police work and a court system that will slap the punks hard enough that they aren't tempted to do it again.

As long as there is a market for stolen goods, nothing will change. As long as the odds of being caught and prosecuted remain ridiculously low, nothing will change. Kids and punks will continue to make the "wise career choice" and just keep stealing from us all. After all, the money is great and ya just can't beat the hours.
