Print Friendly, PDF & Email

UPDATE: 8:12p — Service has been restored. Unclear if the “cutting crew” will face financial liability for the outage.

BOCA RATON, FL ( — For the second time in two days, Hotwire phone, Internet and tv service is out to much of Boca Falls, although unlike Monday's outage caused by a fiber optic cable cut somewhere else in Florida, this outage is apparently due to a careless construction crew in the community.

Boca Falls is in the midst of a “monument” sign renovation project that some say is inexplicably taking several months. It is believed that a digging crew cut the fiber optic line Tuesday afternoon, despite flags and street paint identifying cable locations.

Hotwire has a large team on scene and is efforting to repair the damage quickly.
