Due to the severe weather & thunderstorms last night in Scotland, there has been a broadband outage in Edinburgh at one of the major exchanges, which is affecting many areas across Scotland.

We have reported outages from Forres, Elgin, Fochabers, Buckie, Aberdeen, Huntly & Aberlour.

BT have said in a statement: “Following severe storms and flooding in Edinburgh last night, engineers are working to restore broadband to affected parts of the city as soon as possible but due to the scale of the damage we don’t expect service to be restored until later today (Wednesday).

“Phone and mobile services are not impacted. We’re sorry for any inconvenience.”

We are currently still operating as normally as can be expected, our DR plan for this kind of emergency has been activated and is working. We are currently working with our clients to setup remote working etc. If you have a requirement for remote working we can set this up without visiting your site, just give us a call 01343 610999 or email support@mjdsystems.co.uk
