ZAMBOANGA CITY, Nov. 20 (PNA) – Series of fiber optic cable cuts disrupted the voice and data services the whole day Thursday in this city and other parts of the region.

The cable was reconnected around noontime Thursday, the advisory said.

The second fiber optic cable cut took place in Barangay Culianan, this city.
