Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

Tens of thousands of people in southern England were without phones last night after a power failure in Southampton brought down BT's network.

Parts of Hampshire, the Isle of Wight and Wiltshire were hit after phones went dead at around 6.30pm yesterday evening.

Most were restored by midnight although the whole service wasn't back up and running again until just before 4.00am this morning.

Emergency services were also hit with people unable to dial 999 calls.

BT has launched an investigation into the disruption. ®
