Looks like no post either.

Due to construction work they've severed our broadband. Business has gone Pete Tong, no emails.
Lost about 5k gross in business. No-one wants to take responsibility. Complete and utter EDITEDs.
Won't be up for another two-three days. Currently using the ma-in-laws laptop.
I feel a huge compo package - loss of earnings, Mrs.p's needs etc etc etc.
No mobile broadband where you are (Just a thought, I can't get it where I live though)?
No signature worth mentioning...
You're Not paying for business phone/broadband, presumably? (It would of been fixed in 4 - 24 hours depending on the SLA)
Or any kind of backup/failover?

unless they've severed your line (rather than BT/Virgin's etc.) you claim is for pure economic loss. If loss is consequent on damage to your assets, you may have a strong case, but otherwise you're potentially on (sadly) shaky grounds. You will only have a claim in these circumstances where (1) harm is reasonably foreseeable; (2) the parties have a relationship of proximity; and (3) it's fair and reasonable to impose liablity. That said, it doesn't hurt to ask/posture...
I have some home cinema and Sonos stuff.

It was foreseeable...

The construction work was foreseen, however, the demolition guys confessed our phone system was linked in with the block of flats demolished. As a consequence, BT are having to re-route the line to our house and four others which will take gawd knows how long.
Do think they have a hefty amount of responsibility... well, I'll find out sooner or later. Losing that amount of money is a killer for small businesses.
You may well have legal insurance with your home insurance, check that and tell them all about what's happened if you do.

Cheers Ben, I'll check.
No idea when they'll get it back up and running.
Just before they accidently discover the unexploded WW2 bomb poking out from the only Roman mosaic floor of it's kind ever found in Europe probably.
Finding unexploded WW2 stuff is an almost daily* occurence in these parts.
(*Slight exaggeration, though there were, um, two last month)
That's not beyond the realms of possibility. Only about 18 months ago they found a stash of unexploded shells and bullets on the common. It, apparently, was the Home Guard storage - that is about 300-400 yards from the front door. They performed a controlled explosion.
The council and phone company have agreed "compensation". That is their words not mine, although how much the it'll total I couldn't really say - not holding my breath.
We're back online.
(I can hear the groans)
