A loss of broadband coverage hit one Surrey town last week, affecting a number of local businesses, it has been reported.

BT customers in Mole Valley, near Dorking, had to go without internet access for much of Thursday (May 28th) after a major hardware crash cut off the area's broadband connection, Surrey Today reported.

As a result, retailers were forced to turn to old-fashioned methods, such as pen and paper, in order to remain open.

Manager of the town's Dove Decorating Supplies Martin Allen told the paper: "It was a bit of a nightmare really because we had to go back to the old-fashioned system and do everything manually.

"I know some of the other businesses rely on computers and don't have back-up systems, so I guess we were lucky."

Last month, the Country Land and Business Association signed an agreement with satellite broadband provider Eurosat in a bid to improve connection speeds in rural areas.
