Some Winnipeg MTS customers without service after cables cut
Some MTS customers in Winnipeg's Fort Rouge and Fort Garry areas are without telephone, television and internet service after cables were damaged during a water main repair.
City crews were fixing a water main break near Waller Avenue and Donnelly Street on Saturday when multiple MTS underground network cables were cut.
Fewer than 1,000 MTS customers are affected in an area bound by Pembina Highway, Waverley Street, Bishop Grandin Boulevard and McGillivray Boulevard.
MTS crews are working around the clock to repair the damaged cables and restore services to the affected customers as soon as possible, a company spokesperson told CBC News.
However, the extremely cold weather this weekend has slowed down the work and it's not clear when services will be fully restored.
All of MTS's wireless services still work with the exception of one CDMA cellular site that has been affected, according to the company.
