BT apologises after nationwide broadband failures…

In light of the massive outage BT experienced yesterday, be prepared and ensure you have a business continuity plan when disaster strikes…

Using our 3G/4G cellular routers you are able to have a fully automated back-up pathway for your business communications, should disaster strike and your fixed business line connection (ADSL/ISDN/Fibre) is lost for whatever reason – storm, flood, road-works, network outage.

After your fault is fixed, your router intelligently moves the Internet connection from the back-up cellular link to your fixed line and normal services are restored!

BT has apologised after “several hundred thousand” UK customers had their broadband services cut off.

Down detector, a website that monitors internet failures, reported thousands of cases, including in Glasgow, London, Birmingham and Sheffield.

At about 23:00 GMT BT said it was confident services had been “fully restored” but that some customers might need to reboot equipment.

The company said a faulty router was to blame for the problem.

BT phone services were unaffected by the outage, which began about 14:30 GMT.
