Vandalism of AT&T Cables Impacts Customers

June 22, 2015


If you’ve experienced a fiber outage and live or work in the San Francisco Bay Area, there’s a chance that it’s due to vandalism. Vandals have been severing AT&T’s fiber-optic cable in the San Francisco Bay Area, knocking out service to customers being serviced by those lines. Alexander Carey, AT&T spokesman, did not confirm the number of customers affected by each outage, but stated it did not affect 911 dispatch services.

At least 10 incidents of vandalism have been reported in Berkeley, Fremont, Walnut Creek, San Jose, and Alamo over the past year. The FBI is conducting an investigation and AT&T is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the culprits. Anonymous tips can be called in to AT&T Asset Protection at (800) 807-4205.
