      Notice for Scottish users.

      Essential maintenance work will be taking place between 19/01/2017 00:00 - 03:00.

      During this time our customers will experience a 30 minute loss of their Broadband and Talk services, but we are expecting the work to be completed on time.

      We're sorry for any inconvenience caused during this planned outage.

      Re: Notice for Scottish users and English users.

      It makes you wonder what essential work they are doing?

      It looks like they are doing batches of exchanges that share the same backhaul network. This implies that they are either doing this to help manage the process or that the issue is to do with the backhaul network.

      Yes it seems the whole of the UK is getting 'essential maintenance' carried out in batches.
