(RNN Texoma) - Verizon Wireless has restored service to their customers across Oklahoma and Texas after outages most of the day Wednesday. Verizon customers noticed service cutting out around 7 a.m.
Local Verizon representatives say service was restored around 2:30 p.m. The outage was due to a broken fiber line.
Verizon has issued the following statement, "Verizon Wireless experienced an interruption in service for customers in Oklahoma today. It was caused by the rare occurrence of two separate fiber cuts on different lines, impacting the redundancy built into our network. Engineers were able to resolve the issue and service was restored by 2 p.m."
