Comcast / XFinity is Down Again: The Value of Redundancy

I have two or three of everything.  Just in case something goes wrong.  Like today.

As of 9:00 this morning Comcast disappeared.  So did my Internet and my VoiP phone.  Not a problem.  My business number is a Google Voice number that also rings my cell phone.  Phone service?  Check.  I also have a MiFi card.  Internet? Check.  (I also have a land line phone which lost long distance only once when a fiber cable was cut 10 years ago).

Just in case I have a backup netbook computer, gmail pulls all my company mail because sometimes the email hosting goes off line and 2 SMTP outgoing mail connections.

It doesn't cost much (if any) money and on a day like today, I'm glad I did.

Oh, I called Comcast and they know they have a problem, but no idea when it will be fixed.  Typical Comcast (or should I say XFinity?)
