Wire thieves cause major Shaw cable outage in Langley
Service to thousands of Shaw cable, internet and phone customers in Langley was disrupted when wire thieves cut a major cable line running through a heavily-wooded mini-park near the intersection of Eastleigh Cr. and 56 Avenue.
Shaw said the "backbone" cable was severed around 7 a.m. Sunday morning.
The company estimated 20,000 homes lost cable, 14,000 lost internet service and 8,000 lost telephone service.
