Golden West is working to keep you connected during the temporary power outages occurring and expected to occur across our service territory today. Our services run off battery backup, if necessary, which should ensure continued access to phone service, and in some cases internet as well, during these short outages.
Remember to use a corded phone during a power outage. A cordless phone will not work, because it requires electricity to transfer the signal from the base to the handset. Connecting to the internet during a power outage requires battery backup for the router at your home or business and the use of a battery-powered device, such as a laptop or tablet.
Stay warm while Golden West closely monitors the situation and works to keep you connected!
