About 25 percent of HBC customers lost service for most of the morning, according to a Monday release. Most service was restored by afternoon. The cut was repaired by 9:30 p.m., according to the release.
“We apologize for the outage,” said Dan Pecarina, HBC’s vice president for corporate development. “While many Minnesota Internet users were completely without service, we worked very hard to keep HBC patrons connected.”
