      Sky Broadband down

      We are getting reports that Sky broadband is currently down at the following exchanges:

      Gravesend
      Erith
      Faversham


      As from about midday today.

      It is pretty pointless ringing Sky as they are telling people that T3 will call them back within 5 days.

      Yep, and Faversham (also in Kent) since around 1pm Saturday.

      Just spent half an hour with the premium rate call centre in India ("Is the light working on your router?"), before giving up. They tested their systems and said all was OK. Escalated to Level 3, said they would call in 3 to 5 days...

      My line sync is fine, but no actual internet connection.

      Glad I hadn't got around to cancelling the Plusnet account I have on another line!

      Its a pity Sky don't follow other ISP's practice and publish a service status page.
      All they would have to do is to link to the Easynet one, possibly edited a bit.

      Easynet UK > Support > Status Information

      So if someone at Sky is reading this.............................................
