New start business Capital Fortune struck victory against BT on Friday (20/04/2007) obtaining an emergency injunction forcing the national Broadband provider to forthwith reactivate its internet services.

Incompetent engineers mistakenly cut off the Company’s Internet access nearly 10 days ago causing the loss of thousands of pounds and leaving homeowners across the capital unable to complete their mortgages.

Top BT Lawyers now claim it is “physically impossible” to reactivate the lines in the near future.

Rob Killeen founder of Capital Fortune was infuriated by the approach. “Since obtaining our Court Order instead of rectifying the problem BT have threatened us with costs and their own legal action. They claim the injunction is an abuse of process. They forget we are a BT Broadband customer and just want the connections we are paying for.

It feels like a modern day David and Goliath situation and BT’s behaviour has been inexcusable."

The Company's London based service centre is now at a complete standstill and there is fear that BT’s actions could push the Company to the brink of bankruptcy.

Business leaders across the UK have rallied to Capital Fortune’s call. James Madigan at Chelsea Square Residential commented “They are a great mortgage business and we need to support them in their time of need. This is a national scandal and could happen to any BT customer. If Capital Fortune where a hospital would it take over 3 weeks to reconnect?”

BBC’s Watchdog may take up the case and Capital Fortune will put to the test the “physically impossible” claim.

The Regulator has been contacted.
