Phones lines cut in the town of Troy


The installation of the fiber optic cable needed to provide the town of Troy with high speed Internet service hasn't gone smoothly.

A town resident notified the Star-Observer Wednesday, Aug. 3, after landline phone service to a good share of homes in the town was knocked out.

The resident, who didn't want to be identified, said it was the second time in two weeks that service to his home had been interrupted.
