UPDATE: Phone Service Restored for Frontier Customers
Dead phones caused some concern for people in Luzerne, Schuylkill and Clinton Counties overnight.
Frontier Communications was able to restore service early Thursday morning.
The company says a fiber optic line was cut a line around 7 p.m. on Wednesday.
Many homes and businesses lost landline and wireless service, leaving them without a way to call for help in an emergency.
Frontier worked through the night to get the phones working again in Luzerne, Schuylkill and Clinton Counties.
