Broadband access restored in Stainbury
The people of Stainbury have seen their broadband services restored after a loss of connectivity in recent weeks.As many as 300 households in Stainbury, Cumbria have seen their access to superfast broadband restored after services went down last month.
Underground cabling was damaged by builders at a property on Brierydale Lane in February, which left many people in the area unable to link to the internet, the Cumberland News reports.
Engineers from BT's Openreach division attended the scene as soon as they were alerted to the issue, but repairs have taken several weeks due to the need to build new ducting to carry the necessary fibre optics for local superfast connections, as the existing ducting was seriously compromised in the incident.
A temporary service is now up and running in the area, with full completion of the work expected in the coming weeks.
A spokesperson for Openreach told the local publication: "It's regrettable when Openreach suffers any accidental damage to its network. Our priority is to restore services to those affected as quickly as possible, which is what we did in this case."
