LOWVILLE — Long-distance telephone service in the Lewis County area was disrupted again Thursday, apparently a residual effect from Wednesday’s fiber cut.

Service to the Lewis County area was interrupted Wednesday morning by a fiber cut to a Verizon line that occurred between Boonville and Utica, according to a company spokesman.

While that issue was rectified by late Wednesday afternoon, it had a “residual impact” on some Frontier Communications equipment, causing more problems Thursday morning until that equipment could be replaced, a Frontier spokeswoman said.

Regular phone service apparently was restored around midafternoon.
