Phone service restored to Bell Hospital

Land line phone service has been restored to Bell Hospital in Ishpeming after being without service for most of Friday.

Around 1,500 residents and business are still without phone service, mainly in the West Ishpeming area.  A network cable was cut Friday morning at a construction site at Lofaro’s Market.

AT&T is working on restoring phone service.  Phone lines should be working sometime Saturday morning.

Cell phone service has not been affected due to the outage.
