UPDATE: Windstream Midwest outages repaired


Many Windstream customers weren't able to use phone, internet, and other telecommunications services throughout the day Wednesday.  By late Wednesday afternoon, the issues had been resolved.

The company said there was no specific number pegged on how many customers lost services, but customers in Michigan, Wisconsin, Indiana, and some parts of Iowa experienced outages. 

In Iowa, some of the outages were linked to a Des Moines area company that uplinks its services via Windstream.

The outages resulted from three separate problems.  The first was a computer card failure at a Windstream office in Indiana.  The other two issues involved fiber cable cuts--one in Indiana, one in Wisconsin.  It affected mostly commercial businesses, government entities, and school districts.
