We are scheduling maintenance to upgrade our core routers in Manchester and add another 80Gbit/sec of network capacity. This will be carried out 22:00-02:00 (local time) starting at 22:00 on the night of 24th September 2019.

We do not anticipate any service outages during this period. Though our engineers will be draining circuits prior to each item of work, and monitoring traffic to minimise any possible disruption, it is possible that some short periods of packet loss may occur as we change over physical connections.
