How exactly did the guy know that there will more like this in the future? Were they briefed by NASA of the incoming solar problems?

Bad idea for those who would like to relocate! (I'm originally from Manhattan)
Anyway the last couple weeks when I received a phone call at my home, on my land line, from a cell, either the person trying to reach me or myself couldn't be heard and vice versa through the other phone. Sometimes when either of us would call back it would happen again and switch (they could hear me but I could not hear them). This has been happening with almost everyone I know with a cell phone out here.
Well a week ago my tv's connected to digital converters started to go crazy. There would be ghost images, snow and even mirrored picture effects happening constantly.
I am not home much but today I took off and decided to call the cable company (not satellite) for some answers. Since they screwed up my billing for the past 6 months straight, I have a direct contact in the customer loyalty department and also free HBO and Starz.
Once I explained the problem to the man I spoke to several times before he told me he would first attempt to fix the problem. After resetting the cable box, modem and tv's with no avail he told me to hold for one minute. When he came back on he said verbatim, 'I have taken the phone off record and I am not supposed to tell you this. There is solar activity interrupting service in your area that we cannot fix.' I said, 'Really!' (Because I am a fan of this site I thought someone would have posted something to this effect and I would have noticed.) He then went on to tell me there are going to be more problems in the future of this nature they cannot prevent.
To keep it short, is anyone else experiencing these issues recently?
Should I believe this stranger?
Or is this a desperate attempt to keep me from switching to satellite tv?
