Planned KPU Telecom outage set for late tonight

Vandals recently damaged components of the Ketchikan Public Utilities fiber optic cable system, and repairs will mean service interruptions to some customers.

According to KPU, the damage is extensive, and requires repair to large sections of cable. KPU customers in certain areas may be without telephone, Internet and television service for up to two hours, starting just after midnight Tuesday.

Full service should be restored at around 2 a.m. Tuesday. The outage will affect customers in much of Ketchikan, from 2900 Tongass Avenue through the Herring Cove Area.

Following the repair period, customers with service concerns can contact the KPU Telecommunications Customer Support Desk at 225-2111.
