11 Feb - Telkom Lines Down Westville

Hello All

Trouble in Paradise ....

It has been brought to my attention that Telkom are experiencing difficulty in the Westville area and that Master Builders KwaZulu-Natal is affected by it. I am told that only one of our incoming lines is currently working, so if you are trying to get through to our Westville premises today, you are going to have to bear with us.

For what its worth I have just come from a supplier a stones throw away from where we’re based who is raving mad about his loss of telephone and internet connectivity. He is convinced that it is a case of cable theft and although I don’t know where he gets his information from, I do agree that it’s about time they started dishing out harsh prison terms for this.

For a small operator like him who is largely dependent on orders placed via e-mail and telephone, it brings his business to a virtual standstill. I don’t blame him for being angry, it's costing him money while doing damage to the economy as a whole.
