TAHLEQUAH — The Tahlequah Daily Press and many other AT&T users in Tahlequah, perhaps as many as a couple of hundred initially, lost their Internet service at about 10:30 this morning.
According to AT&T, the problem stemmed from a damaged "shelf" that serves a number of local users. While the outage was widespread, it didn''t include all AT&T UVerse or internet users. There were many cases where a household was without service, while a neighbor still had it.
AT&T estimated service would be restored by 5 or 6 this evening. It was re-established at the Press just after 6 p.m.
