Hi - Just a request for information about service incidents on Saturday (19/11) and Sunday (20/11)
My internet connection was totally unusable (99% packet loss, totally unpredictable, no DNS etc) over this weekend.
I've looked but there has been Zero notice about planned service incidents - On a business broadband line - this is unacceptable.
Saturday - Service was down from 03:00 to 2301
Sunday - Service was down from 03:23 to 18:52 this evening.
I run my own end equipment (hence the monitoring) but also took the time to swap out to the BT Business Hub (exact same issues) and even used the Hybrid Connect - surprisingly STILL had the same issues !
Throughout the weekend - the connection did not 'drop' (PON stayed active) - it simply did not work - suggesting major routing or packet loss issues rather than fibre / fabric.
Please can I have some feedback on what happened ?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Thanks - useful for others.
The issue in my case was routing issues on BT's backend network for the fixed IP range that I was on - leading to the outage - nothing on the client end would have solved this. (I'm an IT network professional by trade). BT had given me an explanation for the outage via PM and the issue has been resolved. I've now marked as the solution.
