KINGSTON, Jamaica – Telecommunications-company LIME is reporting that it is delivering significant service improvement to the eastern portion of the country damaged by the passage of Hurricane Sandy

The company says that its technicians have been successful in establishing a bypass to a critical cable link located between Harbour View in St Andrew and Morant Bay, St Thomas that was damaged by fallen poles.

According to LIME by late Saturday, landline, mobile and Internet customers are expected to have service restored. More work to repair a damaged transmission cable between Bull Bay and Yallahs will vastly improve service to customers in Lloyds and Llandewey the company said.

Additionally the company said it is now working closely with Jamaica Public Service technicians to remount a major fibre link providing landline, mobile and Internet service to Stony Hill in St Andrew and upper St Catherine and service should also return by Saturday evening.

The telecoms company said it was able to restore service on Friday to customers in parts of the Rio Grande Valley in Portland and reactivated landline and broadband services to more parts of the parish, including the capital, Port Antonio.
