AT&T provided an update Thursday on its work to restore service for wireline customers in Louisiana.

Of the wireline customers where service was impaired, more than 85% have had their service restored. While equipment that serves a neighborhood can be powered and online, AT&T says it may not be aware of specific in-home service impairment until customers return to their homes and commercial power is restored. In addition, disruptions to commercial power can affect service for customers even once repairs are made.

The company's wireless network continues to improve as crews optimize the facilities. Today, the FCC reported 108 cell sites out of service in Louisiana, of those, only 8 AT&T sites are out of service. Service impacts can still occur as lines are sometimes accidentally cut during debris clean up.

AT&T has deployed charging stations across the community to support those who have been displaced or remain without power.
