Hundreds of residents in Lincolnshire, who've been without phone or internet access for a week, have been told it could be several more days before they're switched back on.
BT, who are replacing stolen underground cabling in the village of Eagle, say around 200 properties have reported faults since last Tuesday. Businesses say the situation has been a nightmare - leaving them without email, and unable to contact customers.
Natasha Woods who owns the village store and Post Office says many people and business owners have been angry and frustrated by the situation.
A village in Lincolnshire has been without working phone lines after a cable was stolen a week ago.
The theft in Eagle was reported to police on 6th March. Three 180 metre lengths of copper cable was stolen. It's believed the thieves lifted manhole covers near Eagle Village Hall to remove the cable.
