Households and businesses in parts of the UK should expect further delays to broadband and phone line upgrades this week.

This is the message from BT Openreach, the infrastructure arm of the broadband provider, which is desperately trying to restore order to its networks following heavy flooding in September.

The firm explained that its engineers are being forced to concentrate largely on conducting repairs at present.

And as such, work to rollout fibre connections and install new lines has been delayed, the company said.

BT Openreach expects the situation to improve in the near-term, enabling it to be back on schedule later in October.

This isn’t the first time BT has been forced to delay infrastructure work in 2013 - adverse weather conditions earlier in the summer caused similar problems for Openreach engineers.
