Tens of thousands of homes across London have been left without phone and broadband for up to three days after suspected thieves looking for copper cut through crucial fibre-optic trunk cables.

In one of the biggest recent outages in BT's network, lines went down at 11pm on Tuesday and the outage was set to last until 5pm on Friday, leaving about 37,000 Sky customers without phone or broadband.

TalkTalk was also hit, with a number of customers losing their phone connections, although many calls have been rerouted. An undisclosed number of BT Broadband households were also affected.

You cant make this up can you folks  :lol: :lol: :lol:

My tip for the thieves is next time but yourself one of those mini metal detectors before getting the axe out  :yes:

Cables accessed via a manhole on Capital Interchange Way in Brentford were sliced open by intruders on Wednesday night.

you had me wondering if they rented a backhoe or something... tho climbing down a manhole is just as gutsy... ...and stupid... :/

This isn't the first time they have cut off thousands of folks communications for what amounts to a few pounds worth of metal, they need to drop those moronic metal thieves off the end of a pier.
