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 experienced severe weather last week, as a result of storm Doris. This has 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 now declaring MBORC for repair activities in a further three areas, with effect from 23:59 28 February 2017:

Peterborough
Broadlands
Cambridge

MBORC remains in place in the following area:

North Wales

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 we'll remove MBORC as soon as service can be restored to the levels they were at immediately before the severe weather. "

Kind Regards

Customer Support
