Cell service and internet restored after mass outage

Cell service and Internet has returned to eight communities after being out for over 9 hours today (Tuesday).

The outage was due to damage to a fibre line which impacted multiple providers.

According to Telus, a fire caused by a downed tree damaged several telephone poles and fibre cables.

This caused the intermittent outage of home phone, internet, TV and wireless services in communities from Burns Lake to Terrace.
