NEWPORT (AP) — Telephone and Internet service for Frontier Communications customers was restored after being disrupted in parts of southeastern Washington, northern Idaho and Montana after a truck damaged a fiber-optic cable.

Frontier says the truck clipped the cable about 6:45 a.m. Wednesday and that service was restored by about 3 p.m.

Among the communities affected were Newport, Washington, and Coeur d'Alene and Moscow, Idaho.
