UPDATED: Cell, internet restored throughout valley

  CenturyLink has restored cell coverage after a severe outage in Aspen and the midvalley. Service problems were especially affecting Carbondale residents. Centurylink spokesman Sara Spaulding says service was restored before 10 a.m. She sent this update earlier Wednesday morning.

 "CenturyLink crews worked through [Tuesday] night to locate fiber cable damaged by a third party contractor at about 5 pm Tuesday. The work caused our cable to become wrapped around their conduit, and sections of our fiber cable are damaged, impacting long distance calling from Aspen, Basalt, Carbondale and Snowmass [Village], as well as Internet and cell service. 

Splicing began at 5 [am] this morning, however during that process to restore service, additional damage was discovered impacting Carbondale."

We'll have more as this story continues.
