UPDATE: Phone Outage Appears to be Fixed

CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – It appears an outage involving A T and T and affiliated company cell phones has been at least partly repaired.

For the last two days, those customers were not able to make calls to certain phone exchanges, like most Stark County government offices.

Calls that WHBC News made to 451- and 430- numbers at county offices went through Thursday morning.

It was an issue bigger than Stark County.

It impacted much of the region.

We’re told a fiber optic line was cut in the Mansfield area.
