BT have finally reported that this has been cleared. We still have a few users not logged in correctly. The fix for this is either a router re-boot and leave it switched off for at least 30 minutes, or, if that’s been tried and still fails to establish a connection, we can arrange for a line reset. If you’re in this position, please drop an email to email@example.com or call in on the helpline and we’ll get that working for you.
We’ll advise here when BT confirm exactly what went wrong. The emergency work was completed around 5pm and this had caused overnight instability. At 5.30, the Stepney Green system went down again. And stayed like that until a few minutes ago.
Again, our apologies if you were affected.
UPDATE2: BT have confirmed that this is still an outstanding loss of service which they’re still working on. The last update was at 9.30 with no time to fix agreed then. We apologise to those customers still affected. Please keep revisiting this page for updates.
UPDATE: BT undertook emergency work in the Stepney Green area which should have
been completed by 4am. This is however still causing issues with
authentication. We’re waiting for a definitive answer from them on “time
A router re-boot has worked for some people but not all.
We’re aware of reports of outages for ADSL users both in the Merula network and elsewhere. We are investigating and will report back.
