About 1,000 Pattaya residents were left without telephone landlines, internet, and cable-television for three days after wires caught fire near the Sawangfa Temple Bridge.

Utility companies were called out to reconnect about 1,000 Pattaya residents to their televisions and internet after wires caught fire near the Sawangfa Temple Bridge.

Telephone, internet and cable-television technicians were summoned July 1, three days after the cables caught fire leaving the neighborhood unplugged.

Some techs had shown up the day after the fire, but didn’t finish the job due to continuing electricity outages that even affected traffic lights.

The Provincial Electricity Authority fixed the power problems, but it took loud complaints from bored residents to get the utility companies to attend to their internet and cable-TV customers.
