GCI cable repaired, services restored

GCI issued a press release Friday afternoon confirming crews have fully repaired the fiber optics cable that was cut on Thursday morning disrupting internet, wireless phone, and cable services throughout the state.

The repair required crews to work throughout the night splicing together over 550 thin strands of glass that carry data.

Spokesperson David Morris thanked customers for their patience.
