If Verizon is your phone provider, you may be looking at your phone and wondering “what’s wrong with this thing?”

The answer is nothing.

The problem is on Verizon’s end. Law enforcement radio traffic indicates a fiber optic cable has been cut. That has knocked out service in both Tulsa and Oklahoma City, as well as some other Oklahoma communities.

In an email to KWGS News, Verizon said:

"We are aware of a service interruption affecting parts of Oklahoma.  Our engineers are working to resolve the issue quickly."

The service is expected to be restored in a couple of hours, according to police radio traffic monitored in our newsroom.
