Cellular and internet disruptions and outage Coastside

In the Linda Mar area recently?

Half Moon Bay Review/Staff, 11/14/13.  "Internet, cell connectivity problems plague Coastside."

"The Coastside was experiencing widespread cellular and Internet outages Thursday and many Comcast, Verizon and Vonage customers were affected.

Several customers who could access the Internet used Twitter to note their displeasure early in the day, and by 5 p.m. complaints started to trickle into the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office. Thursday night, the Sheriff's Office issued a text alert noting the problem and a later press release said, "technicians are testing cell towers to determine the root of the problem and fix it as soon as possible."

In response, the Sheriff's Office indicated it would dispatch extra marked patrols in Half Moon Bay and around the Coastside in case it became more difficult for anyone to call 911 in an emergency."
