Telephone service was disrupted for more than 1 million customers in Pittsburgh and southwestern Pennsylvania, and officials said the failure may be linked to outages in the Washington, D.C., area and California last week. A computer software glitch apparently caused the latest outage, but the exact cause was not known. Phone company officials said they were considering a range of options, including a computer virus and sabotage.

The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission adopted a plan letting Verizon remain intact in exchange for treating rivals leasing its lines the same way it treats its own retail business. If the company rejects the order, a full breakup might be required, the agency said.
