Symi cut off!

Symi cut off!

Postby Allan » 10 Sep 2010, 16:54

The phone and Internet connections from Symi to the outside world failed around 7.00 this morning and are still not working.

The only way to contact anyone on the island is by mobile phone so Symi Visitor clients should call Wendy on 0030 69458 22896

Emails will be answered as soon as the internet connection is restored.


It is a chaotic situation by the sounds of things. Not only are the internet and phone connections cut but the ATM machines are not working and the ferry booking system is down too! :o


James Collins of symidream.com also sends his apologise for the lack of an update to his blog.

We hope normal service will be restored as soon as possible. :)

Lines still down. They are waiting for a part to arrive for the telephone station up the mountain.

The mobile phone network is still working so this message is coming to you by dodgy dongle! 8-) I have answered the all the emails I have been able to access so far but please bear with us as this is a very slow system. Thanks.

...And we're back! :D

It's amazing just how much we rely on modern communications systems for everyday life. That must have been a tough 28 hours for businesses on Symi.
