So on getting up this morning I found that I had no Internet (that is, web, mail or other IP) connectivity to any site outside of the UK, and even then the UK-based sites were patchy at best. I thought at first that someone’s nearby WiFi box had switched channels again, but even over a cable things were still just as bad. I kept an eye on the Be forums and discovered that this was a nationwide problem, with LINKS being blamed again by many. As yet there’s no online confirmation of anything being fixed, but the connection reliability has been improving throughout the morning.
This the third such major outage I’ve experienced with Be/O2 over the last year, and it’s getting quite tiring. Makes me wonder whether it’s time to change ISP again?
