Suddenlink Reporting a Fiber Cut
Suddenlink services to some customers have been affected today by a cut fiber optic line. Reader Matt Nova, who works for M.J.N. Network Consulting, said he received the following email from a Suddenlink employee at approximately 5:25 p.m.:
We have a fiber cut in the area around the hospital on Harrison. This started about 2 hours ago and could be affecting all Suddenlink services in that area. The report is that PG&E employees were working in the area, a big rig truck came through their working zone after not stopping for flaggers, causing power lines to break and come down across our fiber lines and at least one pole to snap. We have a fiber team on-site, waiting for PG&E to allow us into the work area – however at this time it is still unsafe to enter due to downed electrical lines and poles. No [estimated time of repair] at this time.
