35 homes in Gregorys Bank in Worcester without internet

“FRUSTRATED” residents on a city street are left with no internet and have been for five days.

Around 35 houses on Gregorys Bank in Worcester have been without internet since Friday (March 15), which has caused problems for residents. 

Multiple residents have been struggling to work from home, upload their children’s homework or in one case attend an online knitting class.

One resident, Alex Mace, said the issues started after City Fibre finished work in the area on Friday, and he believes the work they did may have caused the outage.

Residents then contacted Openreach to solve the infrastructure problem but have remained waiting for five days and counting for it to be solved.

Openreach said it resolved the issue yesterday (Wednesday) when contacted by Worcester News.

Mr Mace said: “There are people in their 80s unable to join online knitting groups or work from home, and if they have children like me, then they can’t do their homework.”
