BT blames 'faulty router' for mega outage. Did they try turning it off and on again?


Re: Don't believe it

You were one of the lucky ones. Mine was off (in Plymouth) until at least 19:40. Not sure exactly what time it was back up as that's the time I gave up trying to work and went to the pub.

It did briefly crawl back to life around 16:00, albeit very slow, but after 10 minutes or so it was gone again. Also, when it was back up I could only view certain websites (BBC, The Register), but others like GitHub were still not reachable.

So the BT PR statement saying everyone was back up within 2 hours is a big fat lie. I agree that there seems to be more here than meets the eye.
