After two days of reduced cellular service in areas of Edgartown, due to a failure of a backhaul switch in the network, Comcast and AT&T workers were able to fix the problem.

Andrea Huguely, a spokesperson for AT&T, told The Times in an email that the “company who connects our local network connection in the Edgartown area had an issue with their equipment.’

Edgartown IT manager Adam Darack said through social media, that as of 9:42 pm Tuesday, the tower has been “back up and fully operational,” but offered no further information regarding the two-day spotty service. 

Edgartown Town Administrator James Hagerty told The Times in a message Wednesday that although the problem has been resolved, the town will be reviewing a report from Comcast to better understand exactly what happened.
