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:

"Parts of the UK have experienced severe weather this week, including extensive lightning strikes and heavy rain, commencing on Tuesday evening and through yesterday and today. This caused serious impacts to Openreach infrastructure, with damage both above and below ground, and fault intake in affected areas at extremely high levels.

Openreach is therefore declaring MBORC for repair activities the following areas, with effect from 23:59 21 July 2016:

Highlands & Islands
North East Scotland
Cumbria
North Wales
Central Scotland

We're taking steps, including directing additional engineers into these areas, to bring the position back to normal as quickly as we possibly can.

We'll continue to monitor the situation in these areas and in a number of other areas, and we'll remove MBORC as soon as service can be restored to the levels they were at immediately before the severe weather. "

Kind Regards
