Sky Broadband Down In Sunderland

I have Sky Broadband and it went down just after midnight on the 10th October.
It's just come back on.
I got loads of texts from Sky.
Even today they said they can't do the work until 9pm tonight but for some reason it came back on.
After checking the Sunderland Echo, apparently it has affected people in Boldon, East Herrington, Hylton, Ryhope, central and north Sunderland, Washington and Whitburn.

Apparently there was a damaged cable on the A19 and access to it was proving difficult.

It says its the Sky fibre broadband service but my relation has the basic line in and that was down too.
It was down for about 36 hours.
It is just a temporary fix and they will be working through the night to get a permanent fix done.

Had the basic Sky package a while back and although it managed what I wanted at the time I had to upgrade to something much faster.
I might have the day off today!
