Skip to comments.All Circuits Are Busy - New Jersey
Posted on 08/06/2012 1:02:00 PM PDT by Wuli
Have not been able to make calls out of state all afternoon - from Northern New Jersey; anyone hear anything about this??
Cell, landline, internet based, or all three?
Pls call me....let’s discuss....
all your signals are belong to us...
gotta cast a wide dragnet to nail Tony Soprano...
I’ll be in the shower if anyone needs me.
Drudge is carrying a link to a story about Newark being shut down and the ensuing chaos but I’m not sure of the timeline.
We’re just ignoring you.
aint that simple no mo.whos the carrier
I was a phone man.That test set is up side down, he is talking into to receiver,but it was green acres!
You’re being isolated to avoid further contamination from the Red States of hickbilly America. FReepmail me your address and I’ll send you an NRA sticker or something so you don’t lose touch completely. ;^)
Telephone Line - ELO
I think the original poster is having problems with his beeber.
If this spreads beyond NJ, it could be HUGH and SERIES!
New Jersey has been traded to The People’s Republic of China for two ice breakers and a South Pacific island to be named later.
“Kenneth, what is the frequency?”
Don’t worry, you can use my phone...
LOL... you had to know this would happen on FR. ;>)
It’s weird - it’s only land line, and only from my location to out of state.
I have Verizon Fios - Phone, Internet & TV.
Internet and TV were fine.
Hold it -
well look at that;
I was multitasking, typing this comment to you
and getting another land line call attempt off
and finally, no more
“all circuits are busy”.
Oh, and thanks to everyone for all the chuckles.
I laughed with everyone.
I used the “vanity” option because the issue had lasted so long today, and I found no news on it anywhere.
Oh. And are you logged in?
Thank goodness you got that cleared up. I was worried when you didn’t reply again for so long. Looks like it was nothing more than a sloppily installed Feral wiretap causing the usual stress and chaos for the good of the sheeple then!?! lol
Like I said above - whatever the issue was finally resolved itself, while I was reviewing everyone’s comments, which I laughed over along with everyone else. Had I found some news on the issue anywhere, I would not have used the “vanity” option.
But then all of us would have had a less entertaining late afternoon here on FreeRep.
AT&T has been having issues across the country today. Our internet at the office (Dallas) was out for several hours and calls to their “help” center stated there were/are intermittent problems nationwide.
Since a good amount of all the phone and internet traffic relies on AT&T’s backbone, that could be the reason you are having problems.
I spoke with my cousin who works for ATT last Saturday. He spoke of “hauling the load” of calls on their transmission lines including land lines and cell lines between call points.
He told me he has been at it with them for 43+ years....... a long time with one company
That must have been the noise I kept hearing right outside my house all morning, which I mistook for my neighbors instead of the Gestapo.
10Q for the pic, now added to my collection
The smell in Newark caused it.
Since all of NJ telephone and internet connections are routed through NYC switching, I would guess that Mayor B has instituted a daily limit on the number of calls allowed ... for your own good of course!
I heard something was going on around the Grover’s Mill area.
For calls or everything?
“Since a good amount of all the phone and internet traffic relies on AT&Ts backbone, that could be the reason you are having problems.”
I guess that would make sense, if Verizon Fios Internet traffic “splits off” from Verizon Fios “land line” phone calls, here in New Jersey and our land line traffic hits the AT&T backbone here in New Jersey, and the Fios Internet traffic gets through some other way.
But I don’t know enough to otherwise judge your idea that it could have been - here in New Jersey - an AT&T problem all along, and not a Verizon problem - Verizon, who is ostensibly the local land line carrier.
An easy mistake to make. My neighbors look funny too.
Resistance is futile............
I thought aunt Harriet still had him committed.
He must have escaped.
I better call - no, I'll Email the cops.
Thanks for the surveillance photo.
“Since all of NJ telephone and internet connections are routed through NYC switching, I would guess that Mayor B has instituted a daily limit on the number of calls allowed ... for your own good of course!”
what will that food Nazi do next!!!
His crew must have heard me and my spy in his office talking about him.
“The problems began when the District Attorney asked the Court for permission to tap a Gangster’s phone...”
Maybe it is, but today at least it's (Conservative resistance camaraderie) been fun.
Thanks for another laugh.
I’m prejudiced because my Dad was a lifelong telephone man.
But I remember our Bell System landline being pretty much 99.997% reliable.
Our internet based phone (BrightHouse Indiana) is not nearly as good.
It's worse than that. Bloomie tapped your webcam and saw you filling a bowl with Chex Mix.
Prepare for the dynamic entry in 1 ... 2 ... 3 ...
(all your glasses and mugs over 16 oz.s have been confiscated)
Never saw it ,great..That needs to go on an Election Bill Board with some hit home verbiage
I’ll admit I know little to nothing about where lines come and go from one system to another, but I thought this may be a good reason. And the only reason I suggested it was from previous experience with Comcast. I remember a couple of times over the years they went down and had widespread problems and blamed the outage on AT&T, or someone like that, saying much of their data runs on a network other than theirs. Since your event happened the same time as mine, I just figured I’d throw out what I was told by AT&T.
Hope you are up and running smoothly now. Nothing worse than having phone or internet service pulled out from under you when so much of your life revolves around those two items.
My well connected spouse here in Texas says that Fort Myers Florida telephone service was out this morning too.
Hmmm. Gotta watch this.
See what happens if verizon goes out
on strike at midnight this saturday.
