WE live on a farm in the Nieu Bethesda district. On Tuesday October 22, a telephone pole was knocked down in the village and we reported our lack of phone immediately.
Five days later the pole was still lying in the street, not only blocking access to that street, but all phones in both the village and all surrounding farms were disconnected. Very frustrating considering there is no cellphone reception in a large area affected.
Come on Telkom, get your act together. After all we all pay your exorbitant connection, availability and call fees!
