Frontier, Verizon Customers Report Widespread Telephone Outages

October 18, 2012

There was no immediate word Wednesday night on the cause of communications problems in the North Escambia area that left many residents unable to make or receive  phone calls.

Frontier Communications customers from Molino north through Walnut Hill and Atmore into Monroe County, Ala., reported that they were unable to make phone calls outside of Frontier exchanges and unable to receive phone calls from non-Frontier customers. Numerous Verizon Wireless customers also reported problems making and receiving calls or text messages, particularly in the Molino area.

In previous similar Frontier outages, residents also reported that they were unable to call 911. However, test calls made Wednesday night from Walnut Hill confirmed that Frontier customers were able to reach 911 emergency services in Escambia County.
