Damaged cable under road

Joining in

Hi Guys

So we went offline last week, reported the fault, engineer arrived yesterday. The road was recently dug up, he said theyve cut through a virgin cable. He said it would be at least 2 more weeks before the council authorise temporary traffic lights etc and to call customer services to find out more...

So I called, was transferred to about 6 different teams who know nothing about the fault, I asked if they could send us a temporary dongle or SIM card WiFi, the answer was yes if I paid for it. 

I have no idea what to do next, any advice welcome

I would advise getting extra data for your mobile phone so you can tether as it sounds like it will be quite a while for repair
