160,000 people without Internet in Berlin due to cut fibre connection

Around 160,000 homes in the west of Berlin (Charlottenburg, Spandau and Wilmersdorf) were cut off from the Internet, landlines and TV for most of Sunday. Unknown perpetrators had entered a cable duct at the Heerstraße in Charlottenburg to cut around 400 fibre bundles. Fixing this took most of the day. The connections in question belonged to provider Kabel Deutschland.
