NBN Contractors Cut Another Telstra Cable

NBN Co contractors have severed a major Telstra network cable for the second time in three months at Goodna, west of Brisbane.

Businesses opposite St Ives Shopping Centre were without phone and eftpos facilities for four hours when contractors cut the cable outside Civic Video in Smiths Road about noon on Monday while they were laying high speed fibre optic cables.

In April, a contractor for NBN Co severed a cable outside the Goodna telephone exchange causing 2400 businesses and householders to lose connection.

Wayne’s Tyre and Mechanical owner Wayne Corbett lost his phone lines, internet connection and eftpos facilities for the second time after he was one of the businesses hit by the April outage.
