Fast24 missing, presumed...

ISP does a Marie Celeste

3 Big data security analytics techniques

The fate of Fast24 is in doubt, with the firm's broadband customers still to hear from the ISP a week after it disappeared off the net.

Fast24's broadband punters were cut off last Monday by hosting provider UKSolutions.

UKSolutions say Suffolk-based Fast24 has made no formal attempt to have the network re-established, though there had been informal approaches to restore some parts. A spokesman said the dispute between the firms remains unresolved.

The Register has spoken to former employees of Fast24, who claimed the firm had been in financial difficulty for some time. Several staff left around one month ago over pay concerns and it is believed the remaining workers were fired on Friday.

Attempts to contact Fast24 and Jason Elsom, who orchestrated a 2004 management buyout, have been unsuccessful.

Landlord Regus, which operates the Histon, Cambridgeshire office park which was home to Fast24, told us the firm had moved out of its building.

Fast24 representatives are invited to get in touch.®
