Verizon has fully restored all services that were affected by the train derailment west of Baltimore, in Ellicott City on Tuesday. "Customers had trouble completing long distance calls. When they tried to make calls they may have gotten a fast busy signal, and that was the result of the damage to the facilities that took place after the accident," said Verizon Communications Inc. spokeswoman Sandy Arnette.
"It didn't cause any problems to the 911 service, wireless service or with the high speed internet," continued Arnette. "Our crews continued to work around the clock, and we were able to restore all services within 24 hours of the derailment."
