Service Restored to Local Verizon Customers

Circuit breakers tripped at Verizon's office in Wayne Wednesday morning, causing computers that carry voice and data to lose power, according to a company spokesperson. The computers control Verizon land line phone services as then as police and fire dispatch radios. Cell phones were not affected.

An equipment failure has occurred in the area of Wayne that has sporadically affected the Verizon phone service throughout Chester County. As a result of this failure some residents may not be able to get a dial tone on their land line telephone. As well some residents are experiencing Internet outages which will disable Voice over Internet Protocol service. Cell phones should not be affected by this equipment failure. All received 9-1-1 calls are being answered as normal.
