Unfortunately, fiber optic cables were further damaged in other areas affected by yesterday's tornadic event. Another area of damage was located and cannot be accessed until Power Utilities clear the roadway and restore power. Due to the extent of the damage, we cannot provide an estimated time of complete restoration.

Customers may experience intermittent or reduced Internet Speeds until Fiber Optic Backbone connections are completely restored.

Please do not make any changes to your endpoints or equipment.

Thank you for your patience.
