Blackfoot maintenance to cause short outage Wednesday evening


February 7, 2019

UPDATE: Blackfoot confirms the work was completed at 11:42 p.m. Wednesday evening and all systems are again operational.

Blackfoot customers from Thompson Falls to Noxon may see a short disruption in phone and Internet service late Wednesday. Blackfoot spokesman Wil Anderson said the disruption will be up to 10 minutes, and will occur between 11 p.m. Wednesday and 5 a.m. Thursday.

In December, a fiber line east of Thompson Falls was damaged due to weather. The maintenance Wednesday evening will "add redundancy to minimize future service disruptions," Anderson said.
