      Network Outage

      My BB dropped out about half an hour ago. Just been on to support who say its a widespread network problem and is likily to last for a couple of hours yet.

      How widespread is it? I am in the FY4 postcode Blackpool.

      Lucky my neighbor has an unsecured wireless network He is a hotel that allows it like that to save anyone reminding me of communications law.

      Mines just come back on, at least Sky had the courtesy to leave a recorded message on their phone lines.

      We were told it was a Global Outage and they were rectifying asap.

      was unable to connect for the past hour, only just managed to connect again 5 mins ago. Been getting the same LCP messages and also my SNR kept fluctuating between 6 and 7. Postcode SW London.

      Just the same here on the south coast. It's back on now. Looks like it was nationwide.

      My connection has just come back after about 2 hours unable to connect. Postcode CF72 Llantrisant (near Cardiff). It has happened in the past but it isn't a regular occurrence thankfully.
