Fiber optic cut impacts coast phone service

UPDATE: Frontier Communications reported at 6 p.m. that full service has been restored. 

A fiber optic line was cut this morning (Aug. 26) between Myrtle Point and Coos Bay, leaving some people in Curry County without phone service.

Emergency 911 lines are operational, but if something changes and callers don’t get an answer, they should call the business line at 541-469-3118.

Frontier Communications does not yet have an estimate as to when repairs will be made, but an update will be posted here when the Pilot is notified.

Phones affected at this time include landlines calling long-distance and landlines calling some cell phones. People who receive an “all circuits are busy” message are urged to try the call again, as sometimes the calls go through on the second attempt.

“This has happened before,” said Brookings Police Lt. Donny Dotson. “It’s hit or miss right now.”
