BT Wholesale have announced an upgrade to the ADSL network that will affect all users over two dates next week.
BT has identified a problem with abnormal disconnections of user sessions and is ready to deploy a fix across the eight RAS boxes that we all initially authenticate against. The upgrade will result in a short couple of minutes downtime at each location with things stabilising fully after around an hour. The upgrade is spread over two dates and will occur between 1am and 5am:Tuesday 15th October 2002
If you dont know which of the sites you connect via then it is believed you can identify this by using the bt_test@startup_domain login and performing a trace router to www.bt.net. The location usually shows up as the first hop, see our Q&As for more details.
Thanks to Chris 'TheCaretaker' for pointing out the post to me.
