AT&T Working On Internet Outage In Dallas

October 15, 2018 - 12:50 pm

DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - If you're an AT&T customer in Dallas, you may be having trouble connecting to the internet right now. 

A lightning strike is being blamed for a fire at an AT&T facility that has knocked out internet service for many north Texas customers.

The Richardson Fire Department responded to the facility and quickly put out the small blaze earlier this morning.

No word when internet and U-verse service will be restored or how many people are affected, but AT&T says it's working to restore service as quickly as possible.

An AT&T spokesman released a statement Monday on the outage: "Damage caused by a fire at one of our facilities may be affecting internet services for some of our customers in the Dallas area. We are working to restore service as quickly as possible.”
