FORT PAYNE, Ala. (WHNT) – A Verizon Wireless spokesperson confirms to WHNT News 19 that service was fully restored in the Fort Payne area early Friday morning, after a significant outage.

The service disruption impacted customers Thursday and into the very early morning hours Friday all throughout the Sand Mountain area.

WHNT News 19 took action and contacted Verizon Wireless to find out what was happening.

Kate Jay, Verizon Wireless Public Relations Manager for the Georgia/Alabama Region, said the problem was caused by a third-party “fiber cut.”

“We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate our customers’ patience while the issue was resolved,” said Jay.
