Approximately 400,000 customers statewide were left without service early Tuesday after an undersea fiber-optic cable suffered a break according to a Hawaii 24/7 article. Â â€œWe have a fiber cut affecting Maui, Lanai, and Big Island. We are working to restore as much service is possible while contacting all customers impacted. If you have not been called regarding this, please call our Service Operations Center for the current status. We appreciate your understanding as we work through this outage,â€ saidÂ Wavecom Solutions, which is part-owner of the cable. Â The cable between the islands was severed about 30 miles south of Kihei and about 3,000 feet below sea level.
