Regional Engineering & Repair Delays - RESOLVED

04/11/2014 @ 16:10

This is to confirm the MBORC is now listed as closed. The notification received from our suppliers is as below:

"Parts of the UK, in particular the South West and Wales, were hit with severe storm conditions with heavy rain, wind and lightning strikes, from Wednesday 8 into Thursday 9 October 2014.

This seriously impacted Openreach’s infrastructure, both above and below ground with fault intake in these areas at extremely high levels. Openreach therefore declared MBORC for repair activities, in three areas, on 10 October and a further area, on 14 October 2014.

We have been working hard to bring the position back to normal as quickly as possible and removed MBORC from one area on 30 October 2014.

We are now able to remove MBORC from the three remaining areas, as follows, with effect from 23:59 4 November 2014:

North Wales
Swansea
Truro

This is the final lifting of MBORC for repair activities and MBORC MB10946 is now closed."

Apologies for any inconvenience which may have been experienced during this.

Kind regards,

Earlier this afternoon we became aware of a problem resulting in some of our customers not being able to establish a connection to the Internet.

Our network engineers are currently investigating this.

If you are struggling to connect to the Internet then please try powering off your router for 1 hour before powering it back up and attempting to re-establish a connection to the Internet.

We'll provide another update later this evening.
