Besançon – Acts of vandalism: Grande street deprived of Internet
Est Républicain, 16/09/2017
It’s a nasty blow: Saturday September 16 in the morning some of the residents and shopkeepers discovered that they had no internet connection. No access to the web, therefore, but also electronic payment terminals not working (and therefore the impossibility of accepting credit cards).
Bad business, on a Saturday.
The cause is known: during the night one or more vandals cut the Orange telephone cables that line the façades of the artery. Result: many homes and businesses without connection. At 14h, the technicians called to the area were on the job, without being able to estimate how much time it would take to repair.
