FBI investigating fibercut in Washington State
Hmm, not something you normally see in reports about fiber cuts. http://www.usatoday.com/tech/news/2003-09-04-fiber-fails_x.htm The problem was caused by the failure of a fiber optic line in Stanwood, about 60 miles to the south in Snohomish County, Qwest spokesman Michael Dunne said. Company personnel were trying to determine why the cable failed. Service was restored by early Wednesday afternoon. Calls to Bellingham police about the failure were referred to the FBI. "It's a pending investigation. Beyond that we can't comment," said FBI spokesman Ray Lauer at regional headquarters in Seattle.
