Many Jackson County Cable One customers without service after 18-wheel takes out fiber line

About 8,000 Jackson County Cable One customers in Gautier, Moss Point and Pascagoula are without Cable One-provided television, telephone and internet after an 18-wheeler took out a fiber transport line in Moss Point about 3:30 p.m. Saturday, according to Charlie Oakes, Cable One General Manager.

“It is going to take several hours to restore service,” Oakes said, adding the incident damaged a 216-fiber line at River Park and Main Street in Moss Point. “All customers south of the Escatwapa River and east of (Mississippi) 57 are affected. Crews are on site and working hard to restore services as soon as possible.”
