A major broadband fault experienced by BT users in Scotland and northern England this week has been resolved, it has been claimed.

The internet service provider (ISP) issued a statement saying it had successfully restored web services to consumers affected by the outage.

An estimated 20,000 people lost access to the internet on Friday evening, after problems were experienced with an Edinburgh node.

While broadband customers were most affected by the outage, some BT home phone customers also lost service over the weekend.

The ISP said the majority of customers were back online by early Saturday morning, although according to PCR, some phone and broadband services were still out of action on Sunday.

BT is continuing to invest in its high-speed broadband network, and is currently spending £2.5 billion upgrading local telephone exchanges around the UK.
