    In case anybody else is having trouble. I thought iCloud might be down, but apparently BT are having problems this morning. This will affect PlusNet users as well.

    We are having problems here in the North East. Strangely not all web sites are affected - BBC, and some others are just not accessible, whilst Daily Mail, FT, motorhomefun and eBay seem to be OK.

    They have had problems for a few days, but some big servers seem to have fallen over this morning.

    My plusnet connection is playing up too.
    We're off tomorrow, so I've been busy downloading, had about 30gig left to go and the kids blaming me for wifi issues.
    Apologies if I'm slowing everyone else down....

    Had problems here in Wiltshire - at least I did - but seems OK now. I couldn't get any emails from Yahoo on the laptop but strangely could on my iPhone. Some web sites would work but some others wouldn't. Oh, and the BT Desktop Help was no go.

    PlusNet rock solid at Langtoft Towers - lets hope the Open Reach engineers don't mess it up as they "fix" it.

    It was power related - so (fortunately) Open Wretch "engineers" won't be allowed to touch / make it worse ;)

    If anyone's been having connection issues again today (BBC site failed for me earlier), it might be because another exchange in London had a power failure this morning. BT and Plusnet again.
