AT&T says SE cell phone problem fixed

AT&T says it has restored cell phone service in Southeast Alaska after weather caused problems with the company’s microwave equipment this week.
Customers with AT&T cell phone service in several Southeast Alaska communities have reported intermittent problems receiving and making phone calls this week.

A spokesman with AT&T says the outages are caused by dense fog, rain and icy conditions affecting the company’s microwave communications system in the region. AT&T’s Andy Colley declined an interview about the issue but said in an email Friday afternoon that service has been fully restored.

The outages impacted some cell phone customers around Ketchikan, Petersburg and Juneau.
