We have lots of work happening in January regarding our interconnects to both BT and TalkTalk:New physical fibres to BT: This increases our capacity. New TalkTalk network: This increases TalkTalk's capacity.
We already have customers trialling the new TalkTalk network and we'll be asking for customers to trial the new BT interconnects early January.
Both of these changes will not require our customers to make any changes, and we'll be moving circuits to the new networks overnight on separate occasions. We've not got the dates of these works yet, but this status post will be updated early January with more details.
BT testing is underway: https://aastatus.net/2488
Moving customers the new BT pipes will start from Monday 15th January: https://aastatus.net/2490
We're still waiting for TalkTalk to finish some work on their side before we can start moving TalkTalk customers over.
BT circuits are now on the new interconnects. Due to TalkTalk needing to wait for new software releases from their vendor (Juniper), moving our TalkTalk circuits over to their new network won't happen until mid-March 2018.
The move to the new TalkTalk network will happen in April - the exact date will be announced nearer the time. The impact this has to customers will be very minimal though - a PPP reconnect overnight.
We are expecting the move to happen w/c 23 April. We'll update a little nearer the time with details, the plan will be to move groups of customers overnight over a series of nights.
