Default Parts of the country out?

I couldn't connect to Virgin BB this morning - got the error that the
'remote computer' could not be reached. According to Virgin, parts of the
country appear to be out - BT fault. I'm in the 01305 area - which appears
to be affected.....

Can anyone confirm/deny this?

Cheers

Dave

Did this only affect IPStream?
Demon (which is DataStream IIRC) was up OK whilst I was in.
