– Vodafone statement
"We’re sorry some of our customers in Yetholm have been experiencing signal problems recently.
"The cabin containing essential equipment at our mast in Linton Hill was severely damaged by high winds on 12th February – this had a knock-on effect on the mast that covers Yetholm.
"We have carried out some temporary repairs and replacement equipment has been ordered. Our engineers are on site today and we hope to get the service up and running as soon as possible."
Borders MSP John Lamont has raised concerns with Vodafone after residents from Yetholm were left without any mobile phone signal for three weeks.
Some of the cells in the Vodafone mast at Linton Hill were damaged during high winds in February, so the power was cut off for safety reasons.
However, Mr Lamont says no work has been carried out since then and residents have received little information about when the service will be up and running again:

"To not have any mobile provision for three weeks is simply ludicrous, and it is disappointing that we still do not even have a timetable to get it back up and working.
"While it is understandable that these signal masts get damaged from time to time, it is baffling that it has taken so long for it to be fixed.
"Not only will this have inconvenienced many local residents it will also have harmed local businesses trying to get in contact with customers and suppliers."
