Crews work to restore BendBroadband service after truck downs fiber line


BendBroadband crews Thursday worked to restore service to more than 14,000 customers without service after a truck broke an aerial fiber Wednesday afternoon.

Service appeared to be back for most of the affected customers around 4:30 p.m.

Local field services teams are working on splicing fibers and service is expected to be restored by mid-morning.

The outage affected about 14,174 data customers, 7,511 TV customers, and 4,357 voice customers in Bend, Sunriver and La Pine.

Both businesses and homes were impacted by the outage.

BendBroadband is owned by TDS Telecommunications, the same parent company as Central Oregon Daily News.
