CenturyLink has restored landline phone service for customers in the southeast part of Cedar Rapids (Iowa) after the service went down last week.
A contractor working on the sidewalk of 20th Street SE and Bever Street SE last week cut into the protective covering for CenturyLink's phone lines in the area. Some customers reported their phone service had been out since last Tuesday, Oct. 10.
