Phone Service Down for East End of County

At approximately 2:15pm today a primary fiber optic AT&T line was cut.  At 4:50pm AT&T Technicians found the cut just east of Shadow Creek Golf Course in Sallisaw.  It is believed the line was cut by crews working to install the water line for the new Sallisaw Youth Sports Complex.  The down line has resulted in no long distance service for the entire east of Sequoyah County.  At present  5 technicians are working to restore service as well as a fiber optic repair crew from the Muskogee area.  Along with no long distance service other affected services include credit card machines as well as some internet service.  AT&T Crews will work through the night until service has been restored.  The estimated completion time is projected to be during the mid morning hours.  Those needing emergency services are encouraged to call 911.  Services have been re-routed to a Sallisaw dispatch which in turn will contact emergency personnel in either the Muldrow or Roland areas.
