DESCRIPTION

On 09/10/19 at 02:11 our monitoring picked up that a few thousand broadband lines dropped.

After some investigation it appears the drops occurred due to all the B-sides of our BTW hostlinks flapping causing all sessions over these links to re-establish

Lines did immediately start to reconnect over our other hostlinks; however due to the number of attempted re-connections in some cases it took ~30minutes for lines reconnect

We are not aware of any BTW planned works scheduled for this time and are currently chasing BT for an explanation for this blip

We have identified a blip in our network at 16:53 with multiple customers going offline and not recovering within a reasonable period of time. We are currently investigating and will update this post with any news.
Resolution: We believe that all affected circuits are currently back online. Our carriers suggest that this outage was due to power issues across the UK. If you are still experiencing issues, then we would suggest rebooting your router, or contacting Support at 03333 400 999 / support@aa.net.uk.

DESCRIPTION
We're investigating problems with services hosted at our Maidenhead Datacentre - this is affecting VoIP, sending email, Control Pages and some other services as well as customer servers we host.
Resolution: Power was lost at the datacentre as as result of something going wrong with low risk UPS/Generator maintenance by the datacentre.

Update 1 July: The datacentre say that whilst the UPS was disconnected for planned maintenance they incurred a coincidental loss of utility mains power, and thus power to the site was lost.
