In Dreux, all the streets have been without internet or telephone connection since December 18

The lost football world cup final Xavier D’Elgart will remember forever. This cursed day Sunday 18 December 2022, aside from the Blues’ defeat, it was the entire street, quiet rue de la Biche, in the Rochelles district, in Dreux, that found itself without internet and telephone connections.

In Dreux and Vernouillet, roads still lack fiber optics

Blame the driver. Without asking for rest, the latter crashed into a wooden pillar located at the corner of rue de la Biche and avenue Jean-Moulin.

“It happened around 9.30am. My wife heard a big shock. When they came out of the house the man had already run away.”

Deeply annoyed, this local resident added: “The problem is, despite all our efforts with our various operators, nothing has been fixed since December 18th by Orange, which is the sole owner of the network. long, very long?! We are very long? “About fifty households to care for. And really, we’re losing patience.”

The intervention is scheduled for Wednesday, January 11

Patience that finally had to pay off with the team’s intervention, this Wednesday, January 11th.

Xavier, like many of his neighbours, saw the technician assigned by Orange take photographs, read and place the wires, which had fallen to the ground, safely: “

“But, in fact, nothing has happened since that incident. No more landlines, no more internet, it’s really a pain for people who, like me, can’t telecommute anymore. Everyone has to make a living by going to friends or family.

Yvonne, an elderly woman, said in turn: “I have no Internet and no computer.

Catherine Le Guillou, retired teacher, owner of her house, rue de la Biche, said:

“I am no longer active. But today, the Internet has taken such a place in our life that it is impossible to do without it. If only for all administrative procedures, this tool is essential “.

Catherine was also adamant with her operator: “Orange offered me a commercial gesture by offering me a 4G key which I plugged into my computer. I went to the shop three times. To no avail”.

This Tuesday, January 10th, he finally received a message inviting him to come and get his 4G keys. Everything is set!

The management of the Orange company we contacted on Monday, January 9th, brought us very good news yesterday: “A team will step in this Wednesday morning to replace the pole, rue de la Biche”, the communications department assured.
Why wait so long before triggering an intervention?? Also according to the press service, the demand for repairs on public roads is increasing: “There are poles being cut due to accidents, but also acts of vandalism and more and more theft”.
In 2022, 64 copper wire thefts were recorded in Loiret, 29 in Eure-et-Loir, 19 in Indre-et-Loire, 17 in Cher, 11 in Loir-et-Cher and 8 in Indre-et-Loire.
