How Does GSC Respond to a Winter Storm?

Rest assured, in the event of an outage, our top priority is to restore voice and data service as soon as possible. As always, we caution you to stay away from any and all downed lines.

After a major storm, GSC technicians canvas our service territory to assess the damage and prepare restoration projections. We work hard to have our equipment ready and on standby, have replacement parts available, and have a plan.

We have generators to maintain operations if the power goes out. Additionally, our buildings and equipment are alarmed and monitored 24 hours a day. If a major problem arises, crews are notified immediately.

We also post widespread outage information on our website and social media, so you can check there for updates. If you are subscribed to our GoCare Mobile Alerts, you can be notified of via text message of any outage information for your area as well.  

PLEASE KEEP IN MIND that we may not way know if an individual connection is down. In these circumstances, we rely on you to notify us of service interruption, whether this is by cell phone, email or a nearby neighbor’s phone. If you can find a way to notify us, we will take it from there.

No matter what Mother Nature brings our way, take peace of mind in knowing that our primary goal is to restore service to our customers as quickly and efficiently as possible. Our average response time for service calls is under 4 hours.

If you do experience a problem with your service, you can contact our Service Center at 603-529-9931.
