We live in amazing times. My cable modem went kaput tonight at about 10:15PM. I was working on important emails at the time. Within 45 minutes I had a new modem delivered to my door by "Amazon Prime Now" and provisioned (added to their network) over the phone with Cox tech support. The timeframe is not an exaggeration. In fact, it is around midnight as I write this blog.
Amazon Prime Now is a service that delivers many products to your door within two hours during daytime hours for no extra fee. You can opt to pay just a wee bit more to have it delivered within an hour. It is not available in all areas but is definitely available in parts (all?) of Las Vegas.

Woo hoo, back up and running!
