Cell service North of Brandon

So apparently no one north of #1 to the park from the Saskatchewan border to Minnedosa hasn't had wireless or internet today.  
I heard that a contractor hit a line and basically everything shut down.  
We now have sporadic wireless.  
The internet is not working.  
Anyone else encountering this.

If you check MTS website it was home internet and all wireless services (phone, data, texting) for a good part of the day in Virden, Hamiota, Russell, Griswold, Manitou, Morden and many more. The website still lists all places so maybe it isn't fixed in all areas yet.

posts all day from Hamiota friends on facebook.  
And Virden too, which would kind of be half and half North of #1, at least there new industrial area.

Was visiting family between Hamiota and Birtle and had no internet on mine or mom's phone for most of the day. Everyone else we spoke to said the same they couldn't access anything. Never heard why the outage however.
