ABOUT 1,400 British Telecom subscribers in the Farningham area of Kent were left without broadband after three kilometres of copper cabling was stolen.
Engineers are having to work night and day to replace the stolen cables, which a BT statement described as a “very complex and time consuming repair job”.
Six cables were cut in five places, but services have been restored for most of those affected, with all services likely to be restored by Tuesday evening.
This isn't the first time something like this has happened in the area, with a similar incident having occurred in September of last year.
