PONTIAC August 6, 2017
The phone lines throughout vast swaths of the upper Pontiac went silent last week during an unexpected disruption in the region’s land-line network.
The outage happened on Sept. 19 just before 1 p.m. and cut the phone lines to Mansfield-et-Pontefract, Fort Coulonge, Waltham, Allumettes Island, Chichester and Sheenboro.
For many people, the phone lines were down for a matter of a few hours but some people were without service around 10 hours.
