Mediacom crews are fixing an internet outage affecting Ottawa, Streator and Pontiac, among other areas.
A section of fiber optics buried below ground was severed in the process of utility poles being installed, said Phyllis Peters, communications director at Mediacom. The location of the incident was not announced as of yet. The outage began between 11:45 a.m. and noon, she said.
Crews are on the scene and working to restore internet service, Peters said. She doesn’t have a timeline for restoration of services just yet, but she will have an update soon.
The Times will update this story with more information as it is available.
