    Our engineers are on site. After assessing the damage to cabinet CMNUN88, we are currently in the process of decommissioning this cabinet to ensure safety to the public and surrounding area due to the level of the damage.

    We are working to do everything we can to restore services as soon as possible from. We are looking into the possibility of serving customers fed over fibre from alternative cabinets, unfortunately, all copper services fed from CMNUN88 will not be reinstated until the replacement cabinet is built.

    Our expectation, due to logistics and parts being required, for full service to be restored is the end of the week, however we will post further updates on progress as we have them made available.

    Our engineers are working on an interim fix to restore the majority of services. This solution will restore service for customers fed over fibre (FTTP) from all effected sites. We are also expecting to be able to restore services for the majority customer fed over copper (FTTC). Unfortunately, customers served over Copper (FTTC) from cabinet cmnun88 (corner of Townsend Drive) will not have service restored until we get the cabinet fully repaired, due to the extent of the damage.

    All services have been restored with the exception of copper lines connecting through CMNUN88 – Attleborough Industrial Estate 88. Further works are required.

    We have made the cabinet live and are seeing successful logins to the network from customer routers. If your service is not live, reboot your router in the first instance. If service is not restored at this time please call our support team on 02476 998 998.

    We will need to conduct further works to permanently restore service for all customers. However we will issue further notifications once the work hs been scheduled.
