Cut NBN cable adds to Covid pain for businesses

Little Ms Waste-Not Vintage owner Sophie Rose lost a day and a half of business when the internet went down in Nairne last week.

Hundreds of Nairne residents were left without internet and mobile connections last week after underground cables were damaged by an NBN contractor.
NBN, 4G and 3G services went down in Nairne and parts of Mt Barker and Hahndorf at midday on Wednesday after a contractor accidentally “severely damaged” fibre optic cables while working in the area.
