Sprint's mobile data was down for all customers in the Twin Cities for several hours on Monday, as well as in several other cities, after a fiber optic line was accidentally cut Monday morning.
The cut fiber line also impacted Alaska Airlines, which had significant flight delays as they had to hand-check all passengers.
Sprint's mobile data service went down about 9:30 am CDT, and was restored by Monday evening.
Earlier this morning, an accidental dual fibercut occurred on Sprint's network causing a disruption in data and voice services for some Sprint customers in parts of Portland, Oregon; Seattle and Tacoma Washington; Minneapolis, Minnesota; and San Francisco and Sacramento, California. Sprint network technicians are working aggressively to resolve this issue and we hope to have service restored soon.
