, 23 septembre 2022 (extract)
Since 9:30am, this 23rd september friday, many Haute Vallée households, especially in Quillan and Espéraza, are deprived of mobile and internet network. Reached, Orange operator specify that the breakdown has a vandalism act made on a optical fiber cable in the commune of Quillan for cause.
Apart from individuals, professionnals have also been touched by this breakdown : Bank paying terminals could not work in several shops.
(And, as the newspaper doesn’t precise to not give bad ideas, contrarily to the “Orange/Occitanie local loop intervention team responsible” who has published on twitter the linked photo. It’s along the TER (regional train) railway, after a swale was lifted, that a section of this cable was voluntarily cut.)
