About 5 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon, a fiber optic cable was cut. This wiped out much of the Frontier communications network. Affected were credit card machines. Many people had to delay a fill up as you could not charge for gas at the pump either. We were in contact with Sheriff Cole and he said 911 calls were diverted to Muskegon.
Frontier says a large fiber cable was cut due to some road construction. Someone was boring under a road when they cut through their fiber optic cable. The lines are now repaired but as of this morning customers were still without voicemail. The programming for the voicemail is being worked on this morning and should be up by this afternoon.
