YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – AT&T has restored service to thousands of customers in the Youngstown area.

The outage began for some as early as Friday afternoon. Most people were impacted on Saturday.

People took to social media to express their outrage. WKBN received tons of calls, emails and Facebook messages about the outage.

An AT&T representative gave us an update on the situation just before 3 p.m. Sunday, saying, “technicians have restored U-verse and internet services to affected customers in the Youngstown/Cleveland areas. All services are currently running normally.”

A third-party website’s outage map indicated there were several outages across the country, but more specifically in the Youngstown area.

Holly Hollingsworth, AT&T’s Ohio Local Market Media Contact, who stated the above information, also said:

Technicians continue to make progress repairing a fiber cut affecting U-verse and internet services for customers in the Youngstown area. We are working as quickly as possible to restore services. We apologize for the inconvenience.”
