Emergency rural phone scheme to be trialled

CD Emergency rural phone scheme to be trialled

"Telecom is about to trial a scheme proposed by South Canterbury farmers to keep rural phone lines operating when the power is out.

Heavy snow in Canterbury and flooding in the Manawatu and Wanganui regions this winter meant some farmers were without phones for several weeks."
