Broadband (Service Outage)

Anyone know of the extent of the problem?

The Plusnet link suggests it was on 22.04 on a small number of exchanges whereas my ISP reports it as being today with no indication of which exchanges, perhaps all of them frown

Fine here in 0161 land a few miles from the City Centre.

Perhaps something similar to the tunnel fire in 2004 that took out all sorts of cables and phone in the extended Greater Manchester area.

You are OK as your connection is fibre, its the bundles of copper wire cables near the exchanges that are of value to thieves. tongue
