Network Maintenance, VOM – 25/10/2017

On Wednesday 25th October we will be carrying out network maintenance at Lovesome water tower, fitting additional network equipment to increase capacity for future works. During this time, there will be some brief interruptions to service as the new equipment is fitted and cables re-routed. Interruptions should not last more than a couple of minutes at a time, and we will do our best to keep them to a minimum.

We will be on site from 11AM, and hope to have all works finished by 5PM. This will affect service to customers served via the water tower, and also briefly those served by Merrybent as we need to reconfigure some equipment to accommodate these changes.

This work has been completed.

Service Issue, VOM – 28/09/2017

A power outage is affecting our service to a small number of customers on the Vale of Mowbray network. Following last nights heavy rain, suspected water ingress has cause power to fail at one of our host sites. Despite attempts to reset, it hasn’t been possible to restore power and so an electrician has been called to investigate further.

This will affect customers connected to:

  • Park House
  • Carlton Green

We will update this message with further details once the electrician has investigated.

Service has been restored following work by the electrician.

Full service has now been restored, all cabling has been replaced.

Service Issue – VOM – 15/09/2017

An issue on our suppliers network has meant we have had to re-route traffic via an alternate connection. Everyone should still have a connection, but overall speeds will be reduced while we are operating in this manor. In addition, those customers with a public IP beginning 185.56.40.X will find their traffic is originating from a different address.

We have raised this with our suppliers, and await an update. It may be an issue on the wider internet rather than our supplier directly, but we have investigated as far as we are able.

UPDATE @ 8:30AM 16/09/2017

This fault has been traced to a routing issue, our supplier has a ticket open with one of their third parties to resolve. Temporary changes have been made to work around the issue, and service should now be operating as normal.
