No land-line telephone and internet service

Telephone and internet service out of service north of Highway 401 to Bancroft is expected to be restored Friday morning.

“It is believed to be due to severed fibre optic cables while a contractor was digging,” said Kerry Donnell, Communications Officer with the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board. “We understand it affects thousands of residences and businesses. Cell phones are unaffected and are working as usual. Student and staff safety is our top priority. School administrators have been asked to keep their cell phones with them at all times.”

Presently 17 schools have no land line telephone, fax, email or Internet service. Contact with schools should be done through the Education Centre switchboard where calls will be routed to school administrators on a priority basis. Call 613.966.1170 or 1.800.267.4350.

Donnell says it is unclear how long the outage could last. Updates will be shared as more details become available.
