    BT Outage

    For all of you on BT broadband lines at work - you probably can't read this but its down across half of england.

    From traceroutes seems to be part of BT main core...

    Woops!

    It didn't for me first time around - broadband appears to have come back now! Although originally it said expected ETA 3pm!

    who unplugged the routers?

    Then the answer is

    "No, MY network did not 'go down'. SOMEONE ELSE'S network, over which I have NO control went down. Heres the number to call and complain, don't moan at me about it"

    We got hit by this too - never had issues on our BT-operated ADSL line, but we've had a few problems on our BT Infinity. Tempted to get a second Internet line put in so next time this happens, we can just switch over to the other one and carry on; Internet access is too critical nowadays.

    The irony is, when I phoned BT, their automated message suggested I check their service status web page. Um, one problem with that suggestion...

    The second irony is that I was taking loads of phone calls about it, but couldn't tell everyone because we use a web-based email system! Time to look at a netsend-esque messaging system, methinks.
