Pipex-hosted sites left high and dry by flooding

Fibre? It's dim oop north

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Pipex has today become the first ISP to report major technical problems caused by the extreme weather which has battered the north of England.

A fibre break caused by the flooding in Sheffield has hit Pipex data centres in Leeds and Manchester, affecting the firms hosting business 123-reg.

A Pipex spokeswoman told us: "Some customers may be experiencing extended latency between the north and south of England. Customers should now be receiving normal service, and will only have experienced latency issues for about 90 mins."

Reader reports suggest that other hosts have been affected too. Anyone with more details can get in touch via the byline at the top of this story.

During the storms, staff at Sheffield-based ISP PlusNet were unable to get to work, and its community site has been wobbled by a power outage, but the network held up.

Pipex says its broadband customers have been unaffected by the break.®
