Default Thousands lose broadband after workers break cable

"Thousands lose broadband after workers break cable

Thousands of Sky and Virgin Media customers lost their broadband and
phone connections overnight after a cable was damaged by workers.

Sky said the issue began shortly before midnight on Wednesday in parts
of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

It said online services and calls were fully restored by 14:00 GMT.

Virgin Media said the damaged cable had affected neighbouring counties
including Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire.

[...]

On its Twitter feed, Virgin Media said a fault affecting mobile phones
had been resolved, although it did not give the cause.

The website Downdetector, which measures loss of broadband, said more
than 4,000 Virgin customers had reported problems on Wednesday."

So that's why I awoke to no broadband this morning (the mobile outage,
that is)!
