Sarawak is among the states with the highest number of Telekom Malaysia (TM) Bhd cable thefts, with 1,053 cases recorded in 2013.

The number of cases reported last year however has decreased to 771 cases, but there has been a rapid increase in certain areas such as Lutong, Pujut, Tudan and Senadin.

According to TM, cable theft will effect a lot of its users, which include offices and schools.

It is learned that several hot spots of cable theft in Sarawak have caused Tm to lose millions, prompting them to remove their services from the area almost entirely.
