MTC cable phone service on the fritz

Have cable phone through Margaretville Tel. Co.? Phone not working? You're not alone. My home phone in Andes has been out for at least an hour or so. I just got this email from them:

Sorry for the problem we are having a widespread outage on the cable phone service. Only affecting dial tone. We hope to have it resolved soon.

Full disclosure: My great-great-grandfather founded the Margaretville Telephone Company. Alas, this glorious lineage isn't going to get my phone line working any faster.

**Update: Phone's back in action. Huzzah.
