The supplier advises their issues should now have been resolved, however it may take some time for all circuits to reconnect due to the increased load of subscribers attempting to login to their Radius. Our apologies again for this supplier outage.
The supplier had a power outage at one of their data centres that’s affected their network transit and backhaul and therefore some
lines. We are seeing some lines return but not all and will update here as we get more news.
We are aware of an issue within one of our suppliers we use for these lines. At this point we don’t have an announcement or full details but we are aware of this. The issue is also affecting their portal which we access and their status page isn’t working.
We are trying to get an update on this which we will pass on as soon as we can.
Note: this issue is not on the Merula network but within the supplier network. Our apologies to this circuits affected.

We are aware of a routing issue affecting traffic to some destinations currently. The NOC team are aware of this and are working to resolve this – we expect this to be resolved very shortly and will update as we know more
We believe the reachability issue is now resolved – there is some further work taking place to follow up – however this will not have any impact at this time. We will work to bring the failed link back to restore redundancy shortly however this will not have any impact on services at this time.

23:30 Again, our apologies
We continue to undertake remedial work to mitigate this ongoing attack.
We will update here as usual.
We are currently seeing a new, large-scale DDoS attack against our IP range. We are working to mitigate this but some services are being affected, with packet loss, routing failures or intermittent outages. Some email delivery will be queued until this is resolved.
We will update here as usual.
We are mitigating a large portion of this attack traffic but currently, the transit links remain saturated which is causing the current ongoing problems. We continue to work to resolve this as quickly as possible & apologise for the ongoing inconvenience caused.
We are seeing most services recovering. The attack target remains offline but we believe that this incident is now contained. We apologise again for this interruption in service. If you are still seeing issues, please restart your equipment. Tickets can be raised now in the normal manner & the support line remains ready to assist.
The offsite server that hosts the status NOC site went down during the afternoon. Purely coincidental, but it meant we weren’t able to access it to add more frequent updates. It’s now back and we’ll update the status on the DDoS attack issues shortly. Our apologies that this wasn’t available when it was needed the most.
