Confirmed with Telkom this morning that the cable has been stolen in the Kenwyn / Lansdowne area - Cape Town. This occurred the evening of Monday 3rd July or early morning Tuesday 4th July.
Sadly, this comes as no surprise. Cable was stolen in the Wetton area next door 3-4 months back. It took them 2-3 months to replace and fix issues (they put in new copper and it was re-stolen). I did expect my neighborhood to be the next target.
If this affects you, please post here and I will keep everyone posted.
Also, please LOG THE ISSUE WITH TELKOM. The more people that log a complaint the faster telkom will fix the issue.
Not that it will do anything to speed up the process, but I will have a chat to the ward councilor who lives on the corner to rally the comrades.
