Hurricane Juan disrupts telephony service in Maritimes
Aliant Telecom Inc. reports that it has been able to restore most of the telephony service to its customers in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island who were battered by Hurricane Juan. Brenda Reid of the telco tells Network Letter that Aliant had received 7,700 calls about service disruption, three times the normal amount. Most of the service was restored by the end of last week. Its CLEC rival, EastLink Cable, was predicting that 95% of its service would be restored by the same time.
