HALIFAX, Sept. 29, 2011 /CNW/ - Service has been restored to customers
in New Brunswick after disruption of telephone service earlier
today. Bell Aliant kept the Department of Public Safety in New
Brunswick informed throughout the outage.
Service was restored at 1:30 p.m.
Bell Aliant's network operates with a built in redundancy or a backup
system that limits the potential for service impacts. This morning a
fibre cut in Northern New Brunswick necessitated us switching to our
back up system.
The redundancy system worked intermittently. We are investigating the
exact cause of the issue with the switch over.
Bell Aliant apologizes to customers for any inconvenience.
