Sky broadband subscribers in parts of Scotland have been affected by a major service outage which prevented them from using internet or home phone services.

As reported by the Courier, Sky customers in the east of Scotland were left without communication services on Monday October 27th, from 10am onwards.

A multiple exchange outage meant Sky customers in cities such as Dundee and Perth - plus many surrounding towns and villages - were unable to get online.

A Sky spokesman apologised to the broadband and talk customers affected by the network downtime.

"Engineers are on site working to identify the issue as quickly as possible and we apologise for the inconvenience this is causing," he stated.

This isn't the first time Sky subscribers have been hit by an internet outage this month.

Customers in the north-west of England - including Liverpool and Manchester - were hit by technical problems on Friday October 17th.

Complications with planned network maintenance work meant broadband and home phone services were temporarily lost across 37 telephone exchange areas.
