We are currently experiencing a loss of network connectivity at the Upper Darby Center. The fiber optic cabling between Marple and Upper Darby is not functioning correctly. The fiber optic supplier, Crown Castle, is investigating and will dispatch a repair crew once the locate the source of the issue. This outage may be prolonged because it is more difficult to locate the issue. The fiber is not severed, and is most likely being impacted by a tree straining the fiber optic cabling.
