AT&T high-speed Internet users in Foster City and parts of San Mateo lost service for more than a day last week, after a hardware breakdown cut off DSL service Tuesday night.
AT&T spokesman Ted Karr said technicians worked around the clock to fix the hardware, and by 9:10 p.m. Thursday, service had been returned.
Major businesses and city offices were not affected because they use separate T1 connections, rather than the DSL service many residents use.
The trial for Edith Delgado, accused of causing a high-speed car crash that killed members of the Tongan royal family, has been delayed because a defense witness was hospitalized with an illness.
On July 5, 2006, Delgado, 18, allegedly drove her white Mustang recklessly on U.S. Highway 101 near Menlo Park before crashing into an SUV, killing all three people in it. The trial was supposed to start Monday. A new trial date will be set April 3.
