Broadband connectivity.

How long will it take?
Up to six hours each time.

What does the work involve?
We've received notifications from our suppliers about maintenance work that is scheduled to take place in the following areas this week. This work typically takes place between midnight and 6am.

Yes, there's a chance that you may be disconnected from the internet for a period of time during the maintenance window.

Any customers having problems connecting once the maintenance is complete are advised to log into their router interface and click connect.

Kind Regards
