BT has admitted that part of its network fell over today mirroring a massive outage that crippled the telco in February. Today's problems hit 0345, 0645, 0845 and 0800 number platforms. These services are operational again, the telco has confirmed. A number of businesses have been affected by the downtime but BT is too coy to let on who was dumped without a phone service today. It's understood a bank was hit although no ISPs were affected. Apparently. The spokesman said the number platforms went out of operation for three hours earlier today. Engineers are still trying to figure out what went wrong. Although BT has apologised for the slip-up, this isn't exactly good news for its customers. When BT's network fell over in February it was described as the "the biggest technical problem BT has ever faced". A software glitch was thought to be responsible. ®
