FiberNet customers - including some hospitals, fire departments and police agencies across West Virginia - didn't have telephone or Internet service for about four hours Monday. It was the second time this month that FiberNet customers have lost service. The company reported a four-hour outage on Oct. 10.
In response to the problems, FiberNet announced late Monday that it plans to replace the company's "DC power plant" on Leon Sullivan Way in Charleston. The company also said it has met with state Public Service Commission officials to explain its plans to prevent future outages and install the new power-generating station.
