Major UK Internet Outages

BT's broadband service has suffered an outage leaving many people unable to access the internet in several parts of the country.

The country's biggest internet provider reported outages in several areas at around 9.30am on Wednesday, which it put down to a power outage at a site in London. The company said it was working to fix the issue.

"We’re sorry that some BT and Plusnet customers are experiencing problems accessing some internet services this morning." a spokesman said. "This is due to power issues at one of our internet peering partners’ sites in London. Engineers are working to fix things as fast as possible."

The company's customer support Twitter account said it was attempting to restore service as quickly as possible. "Some BT Broadband customers have reported problems accessing websites this morning. Sorry, we're aware of a problem & working to fix asap," it said
