[UPDATE 5:34 p.m.: Wireline Service Restored] Many AT&T and Verizon Customers Without Service
Late last night many AT&T and Verizon customers lost service in the Emerald Counties.
Attempts to call an AT&T service representative for this area on a Verizon phone this morning resulted in the message, “Cellular network not available.” The same message was repeated when we tried to call Verizon.
UPDATE 9:14 a.m.: California State Senator Mike McGuire tweeted, “We’re working the # internet/fiber outage. We are in contact with AT&T – More information soon.”
UPDATE 10 a.m.: McGuire tweeted, “AT&T reports that problem is located at the fiber repair from last week’s Saw Fire in Southern Humboldt.”
AT&T stated, ”
Some customers in the Humboldt area may be experiencing issues with their wireline service as we work to repair a cable in the area. Technicians are working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.
