Homes in Fenland have been without internet for three days after a major network has reported ‘loss of broadband’.
TalkTalk users in March and Doddington have taken to social media after a red light has been left on their routers since Tuesday, November 5.
Some have even dubbed the light "the red light of doom" after still experiencing internet issues three days after the reported outage.
One local business owner said: "The internet has been off for three days, but it's finally back on when I just arrived at my shop in March. Hope I'm not celebrating too soon."
Another resident said: "We've not had internet since early morning Tuesday, I'm with TalkTalk in March."
