Centurytel is S. M. R. T. SMART!

So I opened a chat with my phone co because DSL is still down at home.

The starting text was:
More than 24h outage: [] / 940-495-5305 / davis53d
Recently upgraded DSL speed.
Was told up to 20 mins down Monday for changeover
Went down Wednesday AM.
Tried multiple times throughout the day.
- Have unplugged and replugged the DSL modem
- Have rebooted.
"Can't obtain IP from PPoE server"
Called Thursday AM, "Due to unusually high call volumes, we are unable to help
you. Please call back at another time."
Called Thursday at almost 1pm, same message.

And here is the chat log
Welcome davis53d ...

Kim K. says, is it timing out. just sitting there trying to connect?
You say, Yes, it tries several times, then says "Cannot contact the PPoE server"
Kim K. says, i can call a repair ticket in for this.
You say, That would be appreciated. I tried calling in to do it, but it said to call back later and hung up.
