Service was restored at 8:30 a.m. today for thousand of Sprint, Verizon, and T-Moble cell phone users as well businesses on Kauai that have been without phone service since Tuesday morning.

Ann Nishida, Hawaiian Telcom spokeswoman, said a city crew doing sewer repair work on Kaamilo Street cut the phone company's fiber optic cable at 11:15 a.m. Tuesday.

Nishida said the cable provides cell phone service for wholesale customers such as Sprint, Verizon T-Mobile and some businesses on Kauai.

The phone company re-routed phone traffic while the repairs were being completed.

Parts of Honomanu Street between Kaamilo Street and Moanalua Road in Aiea were closed because of the repair work, but the roads reopened at 9:30 a.m.
