Verizon telephone outage still in effect

Verizon OutagesSince yesterday afternoon (Sept 23rd 2014) many Alford residents have reported that they do not have land line telephone service from Verizon. As of this moment nobody has received any specific time frame concerning when the telephone issues will be repaired. If you do not have telephone service but your internet service is working, you can report your Verizon phone outage online. The more online outage reports they receive, the more aware Verizon will be of the breadth of the outage.
