And all we have to accept with patience. In a few days the phone will function normally again.
Marbella and Mijas is completely paralyzed.
The damage to the fixed connections have been repaired during the day, but it can still go a few days before ADSL is working normally again. 125 engineers are working feverishly to repair the damaged cables. On Friday 6 May lost at least 90.000 subscribers in Malaga wireless communication via telephone and broadband because of a trade in a substation in Huelín. Of these, ten percent still no connection. Large parts of the municipalities in the western Costa del Sol have been hit hard, particularly Mijas and Marbella, where public institutions also have been affected by the accident.
Disastrous for the company.
While some viewers barely noticed the problem, the accident has had serious consequences for companies. Many have not haft contact with the outside world for days. Financial compensation? There is no prospect of any financial compensation for loss of profits of Telefonica. Telefonica claims that the fire caused a lightning strike and thereby “force majeure”, which means they do not even, has control over such natural disasters such as lightning or volcanic ash. If it can not be cited “force majeure” liquidated damages equal to daily average of the amount invoiced during the last three months, or five times the monthly fee that is converted, per day. This means that if for example the fee for ADSL is 40 euros a month, then the compensation is 1.33 euros for each day of the crash goods.
