Ransomware Update


2017-05-15 11:01:58 - Resolved


2017-05-15 11:01:58

You've probably seen by now the disruption caused to the NHS and others following the latest ransomware attack, which encrypts data, rendering it useless unless you can have the data decrypted.

How should I protect against ransomware or other malware attacks?

  • Make sure you have current backups of all your data - that way you can't be held to ransom.
  • Make sure that if you are using Microsoft Windows - that you have installed the latest versions.
  • Make sure that your antivirus software is correctly installed and is the current version.
  • Make sure you have a security policy in place - a robust security access policy is essential.
  • The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) is a valuable source of information. Whilst we advise that you take caution when clicking on links we suggest you look at the information proved by the NCSC. https://www.ncsc.gov.uk/guidance/ransomware-latest-ncsc-guidance

EAD Connections - Brighton Area


2017-02-23 13:33:17 - Resolved


2017-02-23 13:33:17
There looks to be an issue on the BT network which is affecting multiple EAD connections in the Brighton area. These have been reported and we are awaiting further updates.

2017-02-23 14:21:00
OpenReach engineers are being tasked to visit the affected areas.

2017-02-23 15:03:14
OpenReach are assigning engineers to the Kemptown exchange and will be working to locate the common point of failure. Engineer ETA is 15:30

2017-02-23 16:18:41
There is currently a fibre break that is affecting a number of our (and presumably others) customers in the Brighton area. BT fibre jointing teams are investigating, and have localised the fault. Further updates to follow.

2017-02-23 16:38:57
Engineers have now repaired the fibre break and all connections are back online. Do contact Fastnet engineers on 01273 675775 if you are still experiencing issues.

Session Drop


2017-02-23 12:18:18 - Resolved


2017-02-23 12:18:18
At 11:51 one of our interconnects with BT dropped resulting in a brief loss of session for any customers on the affected router. We are currently investigating this further with BT but any dropped session should have logged straight back onto one of our other routers. Any customers still affected are advised to reboot their equipment.

Potential Connectivity Issue


2017-01-11 10:24:19 - Resolved


2017-01-11 10:24:19
A small number of users on the MANCHESTER BLACKFRIARS UO exchange may be experiencing issues with connecitivty. An Engineer is due to arrive at the exchange at 10:30am and the next update will be available at 11:30am.

2017-01-11 13:29:12
A BT-Managed switch in the exchange had crashed and required re-configuration. Services returned just before 10:35am

Possible Routing Issue


2017-01-10 14:26:15 - Resolved


2017-01-10 14:26:15
Fastnet engineers are currently looking at a possible routing issue which maybe affecting a small number of customers. More updates to follow shortly.

2017-01-10 14:44:26
Fastnet engineers have isolated this issue. Traffic has been re-routed while investigations continue.

2017-01-10 16:10:48
At 14:07 we experienced a temporary BGP neighbour adjacency problem with an upstream transit provider. The peering adjacency flapped several times which lead to some routing instability both inbound and outbound via this router. As a reactive measure traffic was rerouted via other peers shortly afterwards. Full BGP peering was restored at 14:15 but we will continue to monitor before routing traffic via its original path again.
