US Cellular service down for over five hours

Users of US Cellular in the eastern Iowa area expressed their frustration at extended downtime this evening.

On Twitter, customers from Cedar Rapids to the Quad Cities tweeted about their phones having no signal.

@nike_storm - Yeah us. Cellular has been down for like a week now. Get used to it.

@Holy_Moldy - does anyone know when phones are supposed to work again for us cellular?

@RJweb1414 - And this is why US Cellular sucks...

According to at least one source, a fiber optic cable affecting both US Cellular and Mediacom services had been cut. The cause is not yet known.

Neither US Cellular's website nor social media make any mention of the problems, or how long it will take to restore service.
