Comment posted What’s a fibreoptic cable doing lying on a beach anyway? by Mike Story.
I am concerned that given the importance of this cable, and the fact that it linked in the personal alarm call systems for over 200 vunerable elderly folks, that there was no back up system. Even a well buried cable can be the target of thieves..in this case dumb ones, so if vital services are at risk a surely it would make sense to have a more robust back up system…there are a lot of remote homes in this area.

Really sorry to hear about Ron. He kept getting ill and then bouncing back again, but this time it was not to be.
