To increase our capacity we are adding three additional LNS routers. These are the routers that broadband lines connect to.
New connections from this afternoon may land on these but we will be performing a 're-balance' of all lines over all our LNSs next week during the early hours of the mornings. This involves forcing connection to re-connect (PPP Kill) and so will mean a brief interruption to service from 4AM.
Many of our TalkTalk ADSL and FTTC lines dropped at 10:08. Most lines reconnected by 10:11, and the remaining by around 10:18. Cause is yet undetermined, we're awaiting updates from TalkTalk. They did report a 'network flap' that affected a smaller number of lines at 9:52, but we're not sure if these two sets of blips are related.)
Further update: TalkTalk do say that that drops were due to link flaps on fibres between their datacentres.
In relation to https://aastatus.net/40946 we will be performing a number of configuration changes this evening. This will happen from 8:30PM. We don't expect any customer impact as the changes should be seamless.
Services this applies to is: customer collocation, VoIP services, Control Page access.
