Who keeps cutting Internet cables in California?


The FBI reports that fiber-optic lines that provide Internet, cable, and phone service in Northern California have been snipped 11 times so far this year.

The latest cut happened Tuesday, on three major Internet cables serving the Sacramento area, causing cable and Internet service disruptions as far north as Seattle. Microsoft said the damage slowed its Azure cloud computing service in the Western United States. And in one Sacramento-area community, a cable provider had to step in to restore 911 service to local residents whose phones had been knocked out.
