I noticed they left loads of driveways in a state with bricks lying on the side of the driveway and a terrible patch up job.
Yeah, it's bad. Many of the houses in my suburb have been seriously vandalised by this MTN installation. Beautiful front gardens destroyed, intricate stone walkways throne all over, driveways rendered unusable etc. The guys don't give a damn - they'd sooner destroy things than move them to one side. And of course they don't ring your doorbell and apologise for the damage ahead of time like the Telkom guys did. You just go outside one day to discover the front of your entire property looks like total s**t. And it takes ages before they even begin their shoddy repair job because the trench diggers are far ahead of the cable layers, and the cable layers are far ahead of the repair guys.
You must remember that MTN don't do the work themselves - everything is outsourced to suppliers / contractors. However there should be a MTN project manager or Liaison Officer...
The contractor is meant to have signs up indicating their own name as well as who they are contracting for on that job. There should also be contact numbers on those signs, which are sometimes stuck on their trucks.
Get that number and ask for the contact details of the MTN regional manager. Then go ballistic!
Oh I know for a fact that some very angry locals will do that for me lol.
