Some homes and businesses in North Devon are experiencing problems after the internet and phone lines are damaged by rodents.
The outage is affecting approximately 1,800 Openreach customers in the Bideford, Clovelly, Hartland and Horns Cross interchange areas.
Customers said poor mobile phone signals were adding difficulties.
Openreach said it hopes services will be restored online on Wednesday.
Andrew Rowlands, who lives in Hartland, told BBC Radio Devon that because it is in a rural area, the cell phone signal is poor and relies on broadband to communicate.
“My dad passed away last week, so we need to communicate, and most organizations now want you to do it electronically,” he said.
“So if I want to check emails or something, I have to get out in the car to do it.”
An Openreach spokesperson said, “We understand how frustrating this must be for anyone affected and thank the residents and businesses for their patience.
“We encourage anyone who experiences an outage to report it to their supplier who will let us know.”
