MBORC (Matters Beyond Our Reasonable Control) Declaration - RESOLVED

18/08/2016 @ 17:22

We have received communications from our suppliers regarding the MBORC (Matters Beyond Our Reasonable Control) declaration for some areas of the country. Please find the information regarding this below:

"In July parts of the UK experienced severe weather, including extensive lightning strikes and heavy rain. These weather incidents caused serious impacts to Openreach infrastructure, with damage both above and below ground, and fault intake in affected areas at extremely high levels.

Openreach therefore declared MBORC for repair activities in five areas, on 21 July 2016.

We've been taking steps, including directing additional engineers into these areas, to bring the position back to normal as quickly as possible and were able to remove MBORC from two areas on 4 August 2016 and two further areas on 11 August 2016.

We are now able to remove MBORC from the last remaining area with effect from 23:59 on 18 August 2016:

North East Scotland"

We are now closing this service status.

Kind Regards
