Customers signed up to Be Broadband could have experienced reduced speeds this week, but it wasn't the fault of the provider, according to reports.

Workmen unwittingly cut through a fibre-optic cable which had been laid on Yeo Street in Docklands on Wednesday (October 22nd) afternoon, reports the Inquirer.

The O2 subsidiary was hit hardest when the error was made, with contract holders seeing their 24Mb connections slowed.

An O2 spokesman said that the restoration work should have been completed in time of yesterday's (Thursday, October 23rd) peak-time period.

Meanwhile, some of Be Broadband's subscribers were recently given a new multi-player mini-game to trial.
