A network issue affecting the AT&T Trenton tower is causing customers to not have cell phone service.

Grundy County Emergency Management Director Glen Briggs reports the problem started on Wednesday morning, September 21st, and it affects customers within several miles of Trenton. The company estimates service to be restored sometime on September 22nd. He says only cell phones and wireless services are affected by the problem. DSL and landline phones continue to have service.

The network issue does not affect Spickard residents because they get their AT&T service from a different tower. If and when AT&T provides Briggs with additional information, updates will be posted on the Grundy County, Missouri Emergency Management Facebook page.
