Author: JT Smith

Reuters: "Local telephone company Verizon Communications said
Wednesday the World Trade Center attack damaged network facilities that
serve the New York Stock Exchange and other businesses in Manhattan.

The attack also destroyed 10 wireless transmitter sites, and disrupted service to an unknown
number of customers, Verizon said.

``The extent of the work we have to do is just enormous,'' said Verizon Vice Chairman Larry
Babbio. ``It could be a very long process'' to fully restore service."
