I had no connection for all of the evening, but guessed it might be something fairly widespread as the BT Helpline was solidly engaged for about six hours!

a fact that was reflected in our traffic figures here, on the forum.

Sounds a bit more widespread than this then!

"a temporary problem" affecting the Fair Isles, Northern Highlands and Islands area, as well as the Edinburgh area."

Edinburgh it seems.
A reported 'down' in an exchange in Edinburgh.
Seems odd that such a fault should affect such a large area.
Have not BT heard of 'Back up' yet?

And those of us that did have a connection had a pretty slow time of it, including this site.

Pleased it was something other than my own access after trying since 10pm until 11pm last night. Although it was a surprise that a fault in Edinburgh would affect our area of South East Northumberland.

We're on Sky BB, & it went down here in Durham at about 7.20 last night. Not sure what time it came back on, but I'm amazed that a fault in Edinburgh would affect down here.

Sky's call centre were very helpful and apologetic, but as they said, it was out of their hands
