Phone Outage Affects Landline Customers in Stateline

Posted: Updated:
A phone outage currently between Stateline and South Lake Tahoe is affecting landline customers in Stateline.

A representative with Frontier Communications says the outage started Thursday between Stateline and South Lake Tahoe in a manhole on Highway 50. An undisclosed piece of equipment needs to be replaced.

The representative says customers still have a dial tone but can’t call from Stateline into South Lake, and only landlines are affected. Emergency calls and 911 are not impacted by the outage.

Since AT&T services South Lake, Frontier isn’t sure if calls can come back the other way or not at this point.

Frontier says it hopes to have the problem fixed by late Friday afternoon.
