Telkom cable repaired

2010-11-18 00:00

ALTHOUGH some companies within the Willowton Industrial Park were able to function normally yesterday after unknown construction workers along Chota Motala Road mistakenly damaged a Telkom cable on Tuesday, some had huge backlogs as a result of being out of communication on Tuesday.

Yesterday, telephone lines were still not working for the better part of the day because Telkom technicians were still reconnecting the cable. Jane Mortimer of Interpak Books said they could receive calls but were still battling to make calls. She said this had happened at the worst time of the year because this is their busiest time as most of their customers have ordered 2011 diaries.

Pynee Chetty spokesperson for Telkom said: “Telkom technicians worked diligently to repair the broken cable and everything was up and running by 2 pm yesterday.”
