A man hunting crows, last week missed the crow and instead shot down the town's fiber cable with a shotgun. Now the entire town is without internet. The somewhat unfortunate incident occurred in the town of Mjelde in Troms, Norway, writes the newspaper iTromsø.
Tore Johansen, who lives in the town, says that it has been almost a week, and he has not been able to connect to the internet.
- It is utterly hopeless. We do not know when we get the internet is back and the service provider has been absolutely miserable, says Johansen to the newspaper
- It is totally unacceptable that we have to go several days without internet. We're dependent on banking and everything, and in addition it is extra hopeless for those doing business here.
Project manager in the company Nordix Data AS, Leiv-Bjørn Walla confirms that the cable was shot with a shotgun.
Operations leader Eirik Kileng with the Troms Police also confirmes that the police have received a report from Nordix Data AS about vandalism on a cable in Mjelde and that the case is under investigation.
But he would not comment further on the case.
If viruses won't kill internet, there are always shotguns...
