Thelnetham couple back online after protesting to Openreach and Sky


By Newsdesk Bury


A Thelnetham couple left without internet when the village’s connection was upgraded, are now back online following their protest.

As reported in the Bury Free Press on March 1, Valerie and Derek Beasley hung placards near their home calling on Openreach and Sky to sort their plight.

They had gone without internet since February 6 when latest fibre cables were fitted to boost speeds. But the Church Farm Lane pair were left behind, as their neighbours logged on.

However, following the story, it now seems the issue has now been sorted.

Mrs Beasley said on Friday, March 1: “It seems Openreach has reconnected our internet and we are recording speeds of 30mb.

“No-one has contacted us all week or confirmed this will be permanent, but we have taken our placards down.”
