Fourth Time In Months. AT&T Fiber Sliced, Internet Out For Hundreds.
BY: STAFF REPORT | BocaNewsNow.com
UPDATE: 11:37 a.m: Service is slowly being restored across the area.
DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — For at least the fourth time over several weeks, AT&T high speed internet customers are without service in West Delray Beach. The latest outage is apparently affecting homes between US 441 to the west, Atlantic Avenue to the north, Clint Moore Road to the south and Jog Road to the east.
An AT&T spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment. AT&T techs have apparently told homeowners that the outage could last up to 24 hours.
Previous slices have been blamed on construction crews expanding Lyons Road. A Palm Beach County public works official told BocaNewsNow.com during the last outage that the County mandated a bulldozer operator — who had repeatedly cut through lines — be reassigned.
It was not immediately clear if that operator was responsible for Wednesday’s outage.
Previous outages in the area have lasted for more than 12 hours and prevented students from taking part in distance learning during the latter months of the previous school year.
This is a developing story. Check back for updates.
UPDATE: AT&T says that it “quickly” restored service. Homeowners say they were offline for five hours.
