At least 20 out of 44 homes in Sunnyside Park, Ringwood have been without landlines and, for some, broadband after a devastating fire at a neighbouring home destroyed overhead cables on Wednesday, August 19.
Despite multiple phone calls and two visits from engineers, the line is yet to be repaired, leaving residents without mobile phones unable to communicate with the outside world.Cut off! Marooned! OMG!
We aren’t, however, told what percentage of the 20 homes were lacking mobile phone coverage…
Resident Peter Jackson described his disbelief at the situation. “The amount of difficulty BT has put us through is unbelievable. I’ve received three texts from them saying the fault has been repaired when it hasn’t….”Wait, hang on. You got texts?
Well, you’re not even one of those ‘totally cut off’ then, are you?
