Weather impacts some Southeast cell phone service

Customers with AT&T cell phone service in Southeast Alaska have reported intermittent problems receiving and making phone calls this week.

A spokesman with AT&T says the problems of no service or degraded service are caused by dense fog, rain and icy conditions affecting the company’s microwave equipment in the region. AT&T’s Andy Colley said Friday afternoon in an email that technicians have reached the affected equipment and are working to resolve the issue. AT&T apologizes for the inconvenience.

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