PUD-related outages that affect multiple fiber-optic customers will be repaired as soon as they are reported, even if those fiber customers aren't paying the new higher rate 24-7 technical services. Individual customers with PUD-related fiber problems that affect only their home or business will have to pay extra for a weekend call if they don't pay the higher tech fee.
