[CLOSED] - 20cn and 21cn outage

BT Wholesale appear to having a major outage, we’ve just seen all connections on the 20CN Reading RAS’, and 21CN Slough RAS’ drop – this is where BT’s network connects back to, rather than dependant upon the location your ADSL service is provided to.
This is a major BT outage affecting large parts of the UK, we’re awaiting an update from them at this time.


BT have confirmed that engineers are on site and are still investigating the current DSL Outage.

We are awaiting further updates


BT Wholesale have restored service to most customers during the night, however there maybe some intermittent results which are still under investigation.

Some customers may need to powercycle their equipment to restore service.
Any customers receiving the BT holding page will need to powerdown their router/modem for 20 minutes to clear any stale sessions.


We are still awaiting the reason for this outage, once received this post will be updated.

[CLOSED] - Co-location/Broadband Outage

Dear Customer,

We have just experienced an outage affecting some Co location servers and ADSL customers, the initial findings are a PDU in Telehouse London had powered down due to electrical over current issues, as a result a full row of racks lost power.

We are awaiting confirmation of this however we have moved our equipment to another power phase.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.


Following todays PDU outage one of our core switches has become unstable, as a precaution we will be replacing this device, this could result in intermittent or loss of connection for some customers till the work is complete.

We have a completion time of 3am (3rd March 2011).

Please accept our apology for the short notification as this is unavoidable emergency maintenance.


The core switch has been replaced, tested and is now in service.
