As a result of 15 metres of a 2400 pair feeder cable being stolen over the Easter weekend, thousands of GT&T landline customers have no service and the company has offered its apologies.

According to a press release from the company, areas affected by the act of vandalism are: Prashad Nagar, Sophia, Blygezight and other surrounding areas.

GT&T said the damage was severe and added that extensive repairs including civil works will have to be done. Service is expected to be restored in 4-5 days after repairs would have been completed.

GT&T called for communities to be vigilant for persons who set out to destroy such vital communication infrastructure and urged that persons report such acts to the police and to GT&T’s vandalism hotline 0908.
