  The teleco reports that the cut may have been caused by gas company
  workers while they were doing construction work in the area.

  Estimated time to repair (ETR) is 4 to 6 hours.  The reason for this
  extened time is because there is not enough slack in the cable to bring
  the two cut ends together. An additional section of fiber is needed
  to make the splice.  The needed  fiber is hours away and needs to be
  trucked in.
