AMSTERDAM – Around 4,000 homes in Amsterdam were without TV, phone and internet service from 6pm on Monday evening after a UPC glass-fibre cable was cut.

The cable broke in the Van Halstraat, cutting off viewers in the neighbouring district for several hours. UPC’s phone and internet services were knocked out too.

The cause of the break was not known.

Several districts in Hilversum, which for historical reasons are dependent on the same cable connection, also lost coverage, said a spokesperson for the cable company.
