Frontier Experiences Internet Outage
October 3, 2011
Frontier Communications internet customers across the area were without service for about six hours Monday.
Business and residential customers in the Walnut Hill, Bratt, Molino and Atmore areas report that their internet service failed about 9:10 Monday morning. Service returned about 3:15, according to the company.
Karen Miller, spokesperson for Frontier, said early Monday afternoon that the outage was the result of an AT&T cable that was cut west of Atmore.
Frontier high speed internet customers have been plagued with numerous outages — some many hours in length — over the past several months. The company has said that most of those outages were caused by problems with AT&T, the provider for Frontier’s connection to the internet.
