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.

CLOSED

DESCRIPTION
We're investigating a problem on one of our email back end file servers - this will be affecting customers accessing their email by POP3 and IMAP at the moment
Resolution: The RAID card on one of the file servers locked up and needed a hard reboot. No mail was lost and service has been restored. From the new year we will be migrating customers off this file server and on to our new email back ends. More information about this will be posted in the new year - but will not need customers to make any changes at their side.

DESCRIPTION
We're aware that some broadband lines have been dropping this evening, we're investigating.
Resolution: This fault was caused by a 'Transmission Incident' at Stepney exchange - BT had to reset equipment and this affected other ISPs who interconnect with BT via Stepney. Due to an error at BTs side, their usual incident notification messages were not sent to us; if they had been sent then they would have appeared on this status page and our staff would have been more aware at the time. We do apologise for the inconvenience that this caused our customers. The actual cause of the fault has not been sent to us yet, but we'll update this post when we do.

DESCRIPTION
The outage causing customers to be unable to reach email has been resolved. We're investigating the cause, but we have also recently been building a new mail system to replace the existing infrastructure. It's almost like the old system knows it's going to be replaced soon!
Resolution: A security certificate on one of our back end systems had renewed a little while ago (as expected), however, some systems had not reloaded this new certificate and were using the previous certificate which expired today. Because the certificate that was in use had expired, the system refused to connect to the mail store. We will be reviewing how renewed certificates are reloaded by these systems.
