Barclays online banking takes a dive


Barclays online banking services are mainly unavailable this morning.

Several customers emailed The Register to complain that, once again, they could not access their accounts.

A spokeswoman for Barclays confirmed there was a problem and promised us a call back when they knew what it was.

Either the bank has been plagued with problems or a disproportionate number of Reg readers use the bank's online services.

In July the service went down after a new version of the site, and associated marketing push, was launched. In June it lost its ATM network and watched its website crash twice.

It had similar problems in October of last year too.

Can't be anything to do with all those IT department redundancies, can it? ®
