Due to exceptionally severe weather conditions in Gloucestershire, and local telephone line difficulties, Fasthosts' customer service department is running a general advice line only on its telephone support number. This advice line is available from 8am to 8pm.

Alternatively, a full technical support service remains available via email at support@fasthosts.co.uk
