BT broadband in broad-based brownout and TITSUP incidents


Re: Bt have finally admitted there is a problem

> Hmm. So your deicsion to not download Windows 10 must have reduced the amount of W10 downloads going on in the UK today by, what, 30%, 40%?

Obviously not, but Windows 10 background downloading is being claimed as a potential cause and I'm just saying that's not the case with me. Other users downloading Windows 10 could be a factor, as in contention issues, but not at 3-4am and besides bandwidth isn't even a issue, you could have 30Mb+ bandwidth but still can't connect to a website. It's entirely down to packet loss/routing issues within the BT network.

Oh, and BT have now removed the status announcement from their status page even though the problem is ongoing.
