Sandy seen costing telco, cable hundreds of millions of dollars

Probably ATT. Many areas of NJ had zero service from them for days.

Agreed... I live in the same general vicinity in NJ as Alex and ATT service was pretty much non-existent anywhere there was no power from what I experienced. I have friends on Verizon to whom I've spoken and they didn't seem to notice as large of an impact at all on their cellular service.
