MESA COUNTY, Colo. (KKCO) - Verizon customers in Grand Junction were without service yesterday after an outage appeared to knock out cell phone service for most of the Grand Valley.

According to, hundreds of customers reported a loss of service after around 7 a.m. Tuesday morning.

A Verizon spokesperson said that the issue was caused by a cut fiber optic cable and that their engineers are aware of the issue. Service appears to have been restored, but it’s unclear if the fix is temporary or permanent.

AT&T and other telecom services seemed to be unaffected.
