Fiber Optic Cut Costs 911 Service

1-9-06 - A cut fiber optic phone line resulted in no long distance or 911 service for most of Denison and Pottsboro Monday evening. The outage also left most of the viewing area with no KXII service on Dish network.

A construction crew cut the line at Park Street and Deer Run Road.

The outage has also affected some cell phone services.

Local affiliate reception on Dish network has also been affected, due to where Dish takes in the KXII signal.

Crews repaired the broken line late Monday night.
