Westport Phone Service Restored
Crews working through the night restored telephone service to Westport homes affected by Wednesdays outage, an SBC spokesman said today.
An electrical fire on a pole on Hillspoint Road, just south of Post Road East, at about 8:30 a.m. cut electrical, telephone and cable TV service to as many as 1,200 homes.
The electric and cable TV lines were repaired within a short time, but the individual telephone circuits had to be painstakingly replaced in a job that took almost 24 hours.
ғAs of 6 a.m., all telephone service was restored, Seth Bloom, the SBC spokesman, told WestportNow.
