Still no BPL? Now it’s Ike.


CVEC issues BPL Deployment update
CVEC issues BPL Deployment update

First it was Hurricane Gustav that delayed Nelson County’s BPL installation. Now, it is Ike. From the CVEC site:

“As speculated, our line crews have been recalled to aid in the Hurricane Ike Relief efforts. We will not have any crews assisting in deployment next week. We appreciate your understanding and patience in this situation.”

In yesterday’s interview with IBEC Customer Service manager Amanda Langley, she hinted that BPL crews may not make it back to Nelson County if the weather gets worse.

โ€œTheyโ€™ll be back tomorrow and working continuously, unless another hurricane hits, like Ike or anything where they need them for hurricane relief.”

Take a hike, Ike.


  1. Just got this email moments after this post went up:

    I wanted to give you the update that the crews have been pulled away to do relief work with IKE. When they are finished they will return to continue with deployment. We have asked for more crews when they return so that we may catch up on our deployment. We have not heard back from them to know if that is possible at this time. I will keep you updated and let you know when they return.

  2. Is there anyone in the county actually using BPL–either from the previous deployment in the Lovingston area or from the new deployment? I would be interested in knowing how well BPL works.

  3. Quick update … I just spoke w/the IBEC folks and the crews are STILL in TX dealing w/the Ike aftermath. They are scheduled to be back in the area on Monday. When I said “so it’s going to be at least another 2 weeks until service will be available?” she said “oh, yes!” making me think it will be even longer than that. This service better be worth the wait! ๐Ÿ™‚
