GT&T cable at Bartica damaged, 600 customers affected

More than 600 customers’ telephone services in Bartica have been affected by damage caused to several of GT&T cables in the mining district by a third party contractor, GT&T said this afternoon.

This significant damage will require extensive excavation works and replacement for a section of 900, 600 and 200 pair cables for a conduit crossing, the company said in a release.

GT&T has repeatedly appealed to contractors to consult the company before carrying out excavation and construction work to avoid such damage.
