We are managing a carrier problem affecting Castle Hill, Gosford and Berkley Vale NBN POI's.
The reported circuit is affected by fibre break near carrier network element at hub site 9-15 Chilvers Road Thornleigh 2120. Fibre tech attended the hub site and tester showing suspected break at 1.66 KMs from the site where a tree has fallen on power lines & fibre cable at the corner of Brooke's & Judson St at Thornleigh.
Due to OH&S reasons, power company will not allow access fibre crew to break site until power restoration is complete. ETR for power restoration is yet to be advised.
Carrier fixer group group is liaising with all relevant field teams and we expect to share another update with us at 0800 AEDT unless more info becomes available earlier.
Our NOC team will continue to monitor the situation closely and will send an additional advisory should the situation change. If you have any questions related to this issue, please don't hesitate to respond to this email.
