Question NTL Internet access problems - 07 Mar 2006

Getting lots of server not found messages and unable to access NTL status page. I have tried another proxy and that's not working at all.

I'm in DN16 area.

Re: Is there a problem on NTL Internet access?

I'll go and do something useful, things will be working again tomorrow, I hope.

Some sites seem to be working to some extent once again, but as looselipsuk says pictures not loading.

Same problem in Nottingham NG11.

It seems to have been fine most of the day but has just started acting up. I see from the status page that we were due some upgrades today, but they should have finished ages ago at 6am this morning.

Re: Is there a problem on NTL Internet access?

Wondering if it is a main server problem somewhere and nothing to do with NTL at all.

Re: Is there a problem on NTL Internet access?

I can't even get bbc.co.uk

I get re-directed to this: http://www.uk.com/results/bbc?src=bbc

Now I know why I really want to move over to Zen next month after my local exchange has been upgraded to 8Mb
