FORT DODGE, Iowa (AP) - Customers of Mediacom in Fort Dodge and Webster City had their Internet access cut for at least 14 hours after a crew encountered problems in trying to make a fiber line repair.

The Fort Dodge Messenger reports (http://bit.ly/1sgZUhW ) the problems began late Tuesday when a crew from Windstream, from which Mediacom leases fiber lines, tried to repair fiber between Fort Dodge and Humboldt

Windstream spokesman Scott Morris says workers thought they had fixed the problem, but more damaged fiber was found after they left.

They later made a temporary fix and will make permanent repairs by next week.

Mediacom spokeswoman Phyllis Peters said service resumed at 2:40 p.m. Wednesday.

Peters says she didn’t know how many customers lost service.
