As I write this reports are coming that Internet service is trickling back in, but shortly after noon some 10,000 people in the Charleston and Summerville areas would lose their AT&T Internet service after a fiber cable was cut.

The word is that service will be restored by 7, or as late as 8:30 p.m.

Your best bet for the latest is to go here.

If you're still having problems, leave your profane comments below as you wait in tech-support hell: (888) 321-2375.
