Many in the Bangor and Hampden area found themselves without phone service today after a fiber line was cut.
Officials from both Fairpoint and TDS tell us a construction crew working on Main Street in Bangor unintentionally cut the line.
Phone company representatives say the repair process is labor intensive.
About 500 TDS Telecom business and residential customers remain without internet and long distance phone service….local phone service and 9-1-1 service remain operational.
It’s unknown how many Fairpoint customers are impacted.
According to TDS, restoration could take another 4-6 hours.
