Thousands of Telenet customers in Brussels have been left without internet after a major cable was cut during construction works.
Since 2:00 PM on Monday there have been reports of reduced services across Brussels, with a particular issue in the city centre. "A fibre optic cable has been accidentally cut at a construction site, and it takes time to find a solution," explained Telenet.
This breakdown comes at a particularly difficult time, as internet connections have proven vital for people working at home.
@telenet Nieuwe werkdag, still no internet in Brussel... Komt er nog iets van communicatie? Of status-update? Probleem is er al sinds gisterenmiddag, dus kom niet af met "onvoorzien plots probleem, scrambling to get info, alle hens aan dek" zever... #telenet— Common Sense (@Common_Sens) May 19, 2020
