BT unaffected by London power cut

Move on, no story here

BT reported today that its phone network was unaffected by last night's freak power cut in London.

Two simultaneous faults at around 6.30pm last night crippled parts of the capital leaving tens of thousands of commuters stranded and leaving homes and businesses without power.

Even though the outage lasted some 40 minutes, BT reported that the power cut had "no impact on its network" after generators at those exchanges affected kicked in. ®
