PHILIPSBURG–TelEm Group technicians were busy repairing a badly corroded underground telecommunication cable in the Belvedere area Tuesday and said from early assessment their work will continue through Wednesday.
According to TelEm Group Acting Manager, Outside Plant (OSP), Steve Simmons, two roads in the Belvedere area will be mostly affected: Low Estate Road and Prospect Estate Road.
“As of Tuesday, some customers on these two roads would have experienced interruptions in their regular landline and Internet service, but from … Wednesday, service to all customers on these two roads will be affected intermittently as the lines are cut and spliced back,” said Simmons.
He said work crews were busy preparing tools, equipment and the damaged cables themselves, so that they could be ready to start working on reconnections first thing Wednesday morning.
TelEm Group has apologised to customers in the affected areas for the interruptions in service and for any inconvenience caused.
