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

Re: Rural broadband

You know the government are proposing a USO of 10MB? However, today's outage isn't linked to this .

An independent Openreach wouldn't affect an USO either.

BT are responsible for the current USO but one of the issues with a new broadband USO is that Openreach now face infrastructure competition in over 50% of their market - not just from Virgin but also a lot of other providers -so it still has to be decided who will fund the new USO and implement it.

The other operators have already said they would be very unhappy/object if only Openreach is given funding/responsibility for the USO as it will help OR compete more effectively against them....
