Cell phone service was restored Saturday morning to  Verizon Wireless customers in Central Pennsylvania  after a downed tree cut a fiber cable in Harrisburg on Friday night.

Verizon Wireless spokesman Sheldon Jones said all service had been restored by 10 a.m. on Saturday.

Verizon Wireless was notified around 6 p.m. on Friday of a network service interruption in portions of Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin and York counties, said Jones.

The outage impacted both voice and data service.

Engineers worked around the clock to repair the broken fiber cable.

    Data worked fine with Wii fi. It was only calling and text that didn't work.
    Which meant I lost $50.000 dollars in a contest that I had to call within 5 mins.
    So is Verizon going to give people a discount or break?
