Orange hit by outage

Well guys, we’re not alone. Apparently Orange had an outage that started on Monday.

The broadband service run by mobile firm Orange is experiencing a “major” national outage.

The problem occurred on Monday afternoon, affecting 100,000 broadband subscribers at its peak.

A spokesperson for the company said the fault on the service, formerly known as Wanadoo, was caused by a “network equipment failure”.

Orange said they were working to fix the problem but there is no indication when a normal service will resume.

The BBC news website was alerted to the fault by a reader who had been unable to connect to the internet for the last two days.
