Re: El Dorado County Communications System Failures During The Blackout

I live in North Auburn, just west of Hwy 49 & Atwood Rd. Our power was out for approximately 16 hours. During that time, our cellular service was functioning as normal.  I plugged my laptop into a Bioenno power battery, turned on the hotspot feature of my phone, and worked from home without any connectivity issues. We have service through Cricket Wireless, using AT&T's network.
