A power cut has affected the broadband connections of Virgin Media subscribers in Birmingham this morning (December 3rd), according to reports.

The Register has revealed that customers in the West Midlands were cut off from broadband, home phone and digital TV services at around 05:40 GMT.

It is believed the problems were caused by a power cut in the area, but efforts are ongoing to restore the service as soon as possible.

A spokesman for Virgin Media told the website: "Some customers in Birmingham are currently without their Virgin Media services due to a commercial power outage.

"We are currently investigating, with engineers on site, working on a remedy as a high priority. We aim to restore service as soon as possible."

News of the connection problems has come after Virgin Media recently confirmed the launch of a new high-speed mobile broadband service. The company's new dongle offers speeds of up to 7.2Mb.
