Mine went down several times back in October 1995.  It seemed to go 
down every weekend for several weeks, and then went down for an 
entire week, while technicians kept missing appointments or showing 
up early, when I wasn't home yet.  Finally, after a week, a 
technician came on a Sunday afternoon and brought my line in on a 
different pair, finally solving the problem.

I've also had outages of a day or so on my office phone, but not for 
a long time.
