Return of the dial-tone

There was no sign of a dial-tone for over 24 hours. In fact, there was not a ghost of one from 9 am or thereabouts yesterday until sometime after 5 pm today. I guess that's 32 hours or so. A request for repairs was made from another location, one with a working telephone. I plan to cancel the service ticket now that the dial-tone has returned. I can't stand to lose the hours that would be lost while the service is being tested and yet again there would be no dial-tone. This happens intermittently all over the older neighborhoods. Most people just don't bother to call it in, since at home they have alternate methods of telephony and Internet access.
