Telkom reports that cable thieves opened two manholes close to the Akasia exchange in the early hours of Thursday, 04 July. The thieves got off with approximately 360 metres of of Telkom’s cables.
Telkom has since deployed several teams and will work around the clock to restore the affected services as soon as possible. The services will be progressively restored by Wednesday 10th July 2013.
