BTC Service Update: Grand Bahama Landline Disruption
Reports coming into the BTC’s Local Network Response and Recovery Center (LNRRC) indicate that heavy winds associated with Hurricane Dorian are impacting landline and mobile service in the eastern end of Grand Bahama, from Sweetings Cay towards High Rock.
Landline and mobile services remain operational in other areas of Grand Bahama, but may be impacted as a result of exceptionally high winds impacting power and telecommunications lines.
BTC is in contact with its technical staff and are analyzing incidents as they arise and will work to restore service without placing employees at risk at the earliest opportunity.
We continue to encourage residents stay away from all downed lines. Please continue to contact the LNRRC at242-225-5282 or 242-225-1202to report any emergencies.
