[Editor’s note: communications have been restored]
All Internet and land line communication at Sunbelt Software went down as of 10:15 a.m. today.
Verizon and Time Warner Internet and land line service in most of Clearwater, Fla., has been blacked out and is expected to be restored by mid afternoon today (EST).
Time-Warner technicians tell us their splicers are repairing a fiber ring that was damaged by a repair crew at the Intersection of Drew Street and Betty Lane. The crew was working on overhead lines when their equipment accidentally damaged a box containing fiber cable equipment.
