A technician is en route to install a back-up generator and the company expects customers’ service will be restored early this evening.

“Our first priority is to restore service and then we will investigate what caused the disruption in the first place,” she said.

Although it’s unknown the exact number of customers affected by the outages, Telus extends their gratitude to them for their patience, Sauvé said.

“We understand how much our customers rely on our wireless services and we want them to know our priority is to fully restore their service as soon as possible.”
