[CLEARED] Speed & traffic issues across the Merula broadband network

Yesterday was Patch Tuesday from Microsoft. In addition, last night Apple released large updates to both iOS and OS X. As a consequence, all supplier back-haul networks (BT, TalkTalk, Vodafone etc) are seeing a dramatic spike in traffic across their links which is impacting our own services to our customers – those of you on ADSL/FTTC type circuits.

We apologise for this but this traffic should slowly die away over the course of the day so download speeds will start to see improvements.

Please bear with us. If you’re still seeing speed problems tonight/tomorrow, then raise a support ticket in the usual manner.


The main support number is 0845 330 0666 (geographical 01480 355566)

There’s a second, fallback (geographical) number: 01480 411616. All numbers ring directly at our support centre, manned 24hrs x 365 days a year.

We'd also suggest that all customers subscribe to our mailing list (link above); status messages and updates will be delivered by email.
