MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The board that runs Vermont’s emergency telephone system says Fairpoint Communications has confirmed an outage that occurred earlier this month was caused by a software coding problem.

The Enhanced 911 Board says the texting-to-911 capability will remain disabled while Fairpoint tests and completes the software fix.

The outage occurred on Aug. 1. The board says the statewide 911 system was unable to receive calls from 2:36 p.m. to 3:13 p.m. that day.

The board says the software coding issue was involved in a similar outage in June.
