Planned Work: Broadband Upgrades

Posted: Friday, November 23rd, 2018 at 17:03 by David Wheeler

Monday 3rd December 2018 00:00 – 06:00

During the above window broadband users connected via Colindale, Columbo and Kingston interconnects will be disconnected to reconnect via higher capacity interconnects. The time per user to reconnect will usually be less than 10 minutes, if your connection does not re-establish in 10 minutes it may be necessary to reboot your router.

Users on Colindale, Columbo and Kingston interconnects that reconnect before the maintenance will reconnect on the new higher capacity interconnects.

During the above window, Western Power Distribution will be conducting maintenance works to service the electricity substation supplying the local area. During these works, external mains supply will be disconnected to allow safe operation to all involved, in doing so our external generators will supply the Telford data centre allowing for continued and uninterrupted service.

We are speaking with the power company to obtain clarity as to the actual duration of works and will update if this becomes available.

No down time is expected and all precautions will be taken to avoid any disruption, however during this window the Telford data centre should be considered at risk.
