In addition, my entire family has to use their own phone data since the internet is gone.
Do I have any right to complain or get any kind of compensation? I know it's not an issue on our end but theirs.
Sorry to hear your having such troubles. Gordon and Cindy are both correct, you have every right to voice your concerns. Forums such as this one are here to give you an avenue to do so when needed. As for compensation, as mentioned, definitely give our billing department a call once the issue has been resolved. Then they can discuss appropriate compensation for the time you were down as well as the inconvenience.
ARTICLE 15: REFUNDS IN CASES OF SERVICE PROBLEMS
15.1 MTS does not guarantee uninterrupted working of its services or equipment. Where there are omissions, interruptions, delays, errors or defects in transmission, or failures or defects in MTS’s facilities or equipment, MTS will, on request, refund that part of the customer’s fixed monthly charge (or other periodic charge) for the service, which is proportionate to the length of time the problem existed, unless the problem was caused by the negligence of the customer or by customer-provided telephone equipment connected to the local electrical supply.
As for being 5 days I would suspect that on Sunday Dec 31 and New Year's Day Jan 1 there are not a full compliment of Field Service Techs as there would be during normal days so calls for service would back up for a few days.
