ST CATHERINE, Jamaica — Some residents and businesses in Catherine serviced by telecommunications company, FLOW are currently experiencing a disruption in their voice, internet and TV services due to vandalism of the company 's fibre network in the parish.

Today's outage follows last month's vandalism of the company's cables that were set on fire in the Central Village area.

At the time, the company said the cost for restoring services as a result of vandalism and theft of its network infrastructure and elements is around US$2 million per annum, which does not include the significant investment the company is making to further secure its network from criminal elements.

FLOW is assuring its customers that its technical team is working to complete restoration as quickly as possible.
