Although the Broadband Department operates mostly during regular business hours, the Operations Manager (Tom Jones) is on call 24 hours a day 7 days a week (every day).  It is essential to keep the network running.  If an essential part of the network goes down at 2 AM any day of the week, it must be brought back into service.  The same type of 24x7 reliability you expect from your phone or electrical utility is the same reliability the Broadband Operations department will drive to provide.
