Oh noes – they've stolen the internet!

Entanet's East End exchange is burglarised

Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

Entanet customers relying on the firm's Stepney Green exchange are struggling without access today - thanks to thieves who got in over the weekend.

Entanet engineers had to wait for police clearance before they could get inside and see what damage had been done, and what kit had been pinched.

The company sent us the following statement: "In the early hours of Monday 17th Jan, we advised Entanet customers via our Network Operations Centre (noc.enta.net), twitter and email subscriptions that we had lost connectivity to stepneygreen.core.enta.net. Service was unavailable to IPSC and WBC DSL customers directly connected to this node. Those connected to the remaining 19 WBC nodes and nine IPSC nodes are unaffected."

It was confirmed that the outage had been caused by a break-in at the exchange. Entanet said several items of its hardware needed to be repaired or replaced, but this could only be done once the police had finished with the crime scene.

Any Reg readers offered high-end, still warm, networking kit should probably contact the Met.

Entanet said it hoped to restore all services within a couple of hours at the time of writing – 15:36 GMT. ®
