Copper thieves affecting Telecommunications Services of Trinidad and Tobago

Copper thieves in Trinidad and Tobago caused an estimated one million dollars in damage to Telecommunications Services of Trinidad and Tobago (TSTT) Limited on Sunday.
 
TSTT's fibre optics and copper cables were cut and stolen from one of its main arteries in Cross Crossing, San Fernando.
 
The incident caused disruption to mobile, Internet and cable service to tens of thousands of customers throughout the country.
 
Chief executive of Digicel Trinidad, Abraham Smith, says he is deeply concerned about the increasing number of instances of deliberate cable vandalism caused by persons searching for copper.
 
TSTT is reportedly in the process of moving its customers away from its copper network to an advanced fibre network and commenced the movement of its copper plant.
