Telecom cables cut off, affecting northern side of island

Phone lines and internet remained down, severely affecting the Northern side of the island over the weekend.

It is understood no one could be reached using handheld devices including reaching the emergency 999. This is because Telecom cables were accidentally cut at the Sekena Tower late Friday afternoon.

Manatua contractors Doug the Builder accidentally cut through the cables having been misinformed of the true and accurate cable locations.

Many continue to be affected including those that desperately required the service last Saturday when the woman rescued needed emergency help.  

BCN News made efforts to seek a response from Telecom.
