May Take Two Weeks For Verizon To Restore Service To Customers

0

verizon-wirelessVerizon Communications may take another two weeks to restore telecommunication services for its customers after flooding and power outages knocked out services during Hurricane Sandy, according to a top executive for the company.

The provider of telephone, Internet and television services is still working on pumping water out of central offices with key telecom equipment in order to restore its services, Tom Maguire, senior vice president for national operations support, told Reuters.

Verizon is using tens of thousands of gallons of fuel every day in back-up generators powering telecom equipment and in vehicles that are working in affected areas.

But despite reports of fuel shortages at gas stations around the region Maguire said he is “pretty confident” the company will have access to enough fuel supplies.
