The decline of the landline phone
MARSHALL COUNTY, Ky. - No calls, no texts, and no service for hours. Local law enforcement and AT&T customers call it a crisis. "There are some of us that rely on our cell phones for just about everything," said AT&T customer Anthony Davison.
The company released this statement: "A third-party construction crew, doing work unrelated to AT&T, cut a cable near Bowling Green that caused Tuesday's wireless service disruption in Western Kentucky that impacted some of our customers. The disruption lasted about four hours beginning around 3:15 pm ET when the cable was cut. Technicians rerouted wireless traffic and service is currently running normally. We know customers count on their wireless services, and we apologize for this inconvenience."
