AT&T Business Fiber had yet another outage again today, with 3 hours of downtime in my region in Culver City. I would highly recommend against anyone ever doing business with AT&T. Probably the worst vendor I’ve ever worked with.
Zayo is getting their fiber installed tomorrow morning, thank god.
I was able to work all day yesterday and also got my best 4 mile run of this year in. Made a lot of progress on bugs with our recruiting system. Went climbing this morning with David Paradiso, which was also really fun. Going to take a nap now and then get back to work. Haven’t had a drink in 3 weeks which I am also proud of.
I have been doing a ton of work lately to restructure Coalition so we can grow to a 1,000+ clients and a 1,000+ full time team members, including:
- Moving Jordan to COO
- Planning the promotions of others to fill critical positions
- Redeveloping Scoretask’s navigation to link to all important company documents
- Building on new Scoretask modules to support our work
My grandma woke up a couple of days ago totally blind in her right eye. When my grandfather got up from bed, he found her sitting her chair. She told him, “I need you to take me to the doctor, I can’t see anything out of my right eye”. He took her to their prescheduled primary care doctor’s appointment, who immediately sent them to a retina specialist. The retina specialist diagnosed her with retinal vein occlusion – basically a condition in which the eye has the equivalent of a stroke. The blood supply to her retina had been painlessly blocked by a blood clot or something like that and her retina died.
She has been in good spirits and seems to be pretty accepting of this. She will be going in to the doctor tomorrow to get tests done to try to spot potential carotid artery issues that could cause a stroke in the future. Our main goal now is prevention of any further issues.
I strongly recommend against any business getting AT&T shared fiber. I was told by the salesperson when I signed up for a 200 MB up & down connection that it would be amply enough to support my office of 25 people. However, the ONLY router you can use is a consumer grade router that basically will only support 2500 NAT… which works out to about 3-5 people. I have had a nightmare of having my internet crash for 30+ minutes a day because of AT&T’s small business fiber scam. I recommend going with any other provider.
I am trying to delegate more tasks to my team. I still have been feeling pretty swamped though.
