Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

BT has sorted out the problem that caused around ten recently ADSL-enabled exchanges to go titsup.

It seems a new class of line card was to blame for the outage which hit hundreds of users who had campaigned to get their exchanges converted to ADSL. BT declined to say which manufacturer is to blame for the fault.

The problem was fixed on Saturday and BT reports that users have now been able to connect with no problems. However, BT is still keeping a close eye on the matter, you know, just in case.

On Friday, BT was still unclear what the problem was and claimed that the outages were down to a "range of faults". ®
