Broadband session drops

We’ve seen some sessions drop (on ADSL and FTTC/FTTP connections|) following an unexpected port reboot on one of our main switches here.

Most sessions have automatically re-connected but if your line is failing to come back as expected, it may have a stale session which needs to be cleared down. To do this, please power-down your router for 15/20 minutes and then attempt to re-connect.

This should bring you back on-line but please raise a fault with support here in the normal manner if you’re then still having problems.

Possible outage affecting a small number of C20 lines

We are aware of a problem with authentication to our Radius servers in the last 20 minutes that is affecting ONLY circuits delivered as from C20 exchanges — we are working on this now and expect a resolution shortly.

It’s only affecting those lines that have dropped earlier or had been switched off and are now trying to connect (“authenticate”) and not on lines currently logged in all of which should carry on working normally; so is only a problem for a small part of the ADSL estate in Merula.

Planed upgrade – broadband. 

Over the next few days we will be installing a new host link for our adsl backhaul. This should not cause any downtime but you may notice a ppp drop as sessions are balanced across the new links. 

This should only cause a few seconds of issues however in some cases it may be that your router needs to be re-booted to reconnect. 

If you have any issues please call support in the normal way.
