A UK internet service provider suffered a service outage last week following a major Denial of Service Attack.

ISPreview reported that Vispa Internet customers suffered "a raft of connectivity and support problems" on Friday, with many unable to connect and others experiencing very slow speeds.

Vispa's Commercial Director Adam Binks told the website that the attack caused a severe outage between 01:00 and 12:30 GMT on Friday January 8th.

Speaking at 14:26 GMT on the same day, he added: "All services have now been restored except for our phone system which has been affected as part of the problem.

"We are currently working with suppliers to have the main numbers diverted to other lines within the office but expect to restore the system by the end of today."

The firm apologised for any inconvenience caused to its broadband subscribers.

Back in the autumn, Vispa Internet acquired the broadband DSL customer base of Scotland-based Abel Internet.
