(KFSM) –Phone go quiet? If you’re with Verizon Wireless, there’s a reason.

Residents in Northwest Arkansas and the River Valley reported a loss of LTE/cellular service Saturday morning (August 10th).

A Verizon Wireless spokesman released the following statement:

“Verizon Wireless experienced interruption in service for some customers throughout the areas of Fort Smith and Fayetteville to the Bentonville corridor, due to a fiber cut experienced by one of our vendor partners. Engineers were able to identify and resolve the issue and service was restored by 5:30 p.m.”
