BT has apologised for a service outage experienced by many broadband subscribers over the weekend.

The telecoms firm's network status page reported there was a 'major broadband problem' on Saturday June 28th.

BT subscribers in various UK locations - including Cornwall, Kent and Lancashire - reported problems accessing the internet.

Users were unable to connect to various websites, including major social media, banking and ecommerce portals.

"Sorry about the issues many of you had accessing the internet this morning," BT stated on its @BTCare Twitter feed.

The broadband provider said it was unable to confirm how many users were affected by the outage.

A BT spokesperson told TechWeekEurope that the issue was fixed within a couple of hours, allowing the firm's subscribers to get back online.

"We apologise for any inconvenience caused," the representative stated.
