Verizon says 1.4 mln customers back on its fiber optic network
Nov 14 (Reuters) - Verizon Communications said fiber optic services have been restored to more than 1.4 million customers hurt by Hurricane Sandy.
The provider of telephone, Internet and television services said on Nov. 1 that it may take another two weeks to restore telecommunication services for its customers after flooding and power outages knocked out services.
The company said it completed 364,000 repairs across the mid-Atlantic and northeast regions.
Verizon said it will provide credits for landline customers and fix equipment damaged due to the hurricane.
Verizon shares were up at $42.39 after the bell on Wednesday. They closed at $42.24 on the New York Stock Exchange.
