All households and businesses which lost broadband services due to storm damage at the end of October 2013 have now been reconnected, it has been claimed.

Engineers at Openreach, BT's infrastructure division, say they have resolved all network issues in affected locations in the south of England, reports Recombu.

Damage caused by St. Jude's Storm on October 27th and 28th led to internet and home phone disruptions in a number of towns and cities, and Openreach has been working to restore connectivity throughout early November.

According to the company, broadband subscribers in Bournemouth, Cambridge, Central Downs, East Downs, Colchester, Ipswich, Crayford, Croydon and Esher were among the last to see repairs.

Homes and businesses in Guildford, Hemel, Romford, Southend and the West Downs - including the Isle of Wight - have also seen normal broadband services resume.

In other news this week, Openreach revealed that super-fast broadband has gone live for the first time in the Westbury on Trym and Avonmouth areas of Bristol.

Almost 6,000 homes and businesses have gained access to the high-speed technology - a number that will increase to more than 10,500 as engineers complete the local upgrade.
