Severed fiber optic line cause of outage
MANISTIQUE – Area cellular and landline telephone services were disrupted for several hours Friday, due to a cut fiber optic line, according to a CenturyLink representative. Schoolcraft County residents were primarily affected during the outage.
Stephanie Meisse, with CenturyLink, explained that the cut line was the result of work being done in the area.
“A CenturyLink fiber line was cut in the Manistique area on Friday afternoon by a third party company that was doing work for the City of Manistique,” she said.
Service was restored by Friday evening.
