Following reports of a number of telephone and brosdband outages in West Donegal today, Eircom is acknowleging there are around 5,000 faults on the network this evening.
Eircom say as a result of the windy weather, fault levels have increased across the country, with the worst affected areas Donegal, Mayo, Cork, Kerry, Waterford and Wexford.
They say repair crews are working hard to restore service as quickly as possible, and where necessary, the teams will continue to work through the weekend.
Customers with persistent problems are urged, where possible, to log faults on the “Log a Fault” section of the eircom dot i.e. our website, or by dialling 1901.
