OKLAHOMA CITY (KOKH) - Verizon Wireless says service is restored after
a massive outage left thousands of customers across Oklahoma without
coverage Wednesday.

"Verizon Wireless experienced an interruption in service for customers
in Oklahoma today," said Jeannine Brew, a spokeswoman for the
company. "It was caused by the rare occurrence of two separate fiber
cuts on different lines, impacting the redundancy built into our
network. Engineers were able to resolve the issue and service was
restored by 2 PM CT."

Nothing new.  Back in 1988, for example, AT&T suffered a cable
break from improper digging, as described in Network World.

Back in 1947 the Bell System raced to replace a burned out exchange,
