After the terrible storms which have battered the South East the phone and internet lines are still down in some rural areas, such as Rolvenden Layne in Kent. For some - who run a business from home or who have medical needs, it's a serious issue.
David Johns spoke to residents Gill Pooley and Rodney Lonsdale.
Almost every home that lost power in the storms across the South East has now been reconnected. But for many it's meant a Christmas of misery and waiting for repairs. David Johns has visited one couple, Gill and Ian Pooley, who've been without electricity for eight days.
