Cut fiber in Lubbock halts Yucca Internet

Yucca Telecom Internet service was restored to Roosevelt County
residents just before 2 p.m. Tuesday after a cut cable in Lubbock in
the morning caused more than 3,000 customers to lose their Internet
service, according to technician Bob Turnbough.
Turnbough said there could be flickers of service, “but if there is they should be short-lived.”
The
outage came just after 9 a.m., cutting off Internet service to all
local Yucca Telecom customers and customers of Internet service
provider PVT, he said.
Portales Municipal Schools and, “a nice chunk
of businesses in the community,” have Yucca internet services he said,
though some businesses may have a back-up provider.
