Crews from Frontier Communications, CCAonline and other
companies scrambled through the day and into the night to find and correct the
source of the problem.
Around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday, Frontier Communications found the
source of the outage: a fiber-optic line that had been cut in McLean by
unknown parties around 2:30 p.m. Monday.
Frontier fiber repair crews worked through the night to
repair the damaged line and restore service to the affected area. They report
that they have made progress on the repair of the fiber-optic line and expect to
have service restored this morning.
