Findings of Investigation into Manx Telecom's Broadband Outage
Monday, October 19, 2020Industry
In August 2020 the Communications Commission (the Commission) became aware of a broadband outage that impacted upon a significant number of the Island’s consumers. The outage, which was traced back to a hardware failure in one of the Broadband Network Gateways of Manx Telecom’s core network, began on 24th August 2020, and Manx Telecom worked over the subsequent days to find and resolve the cause, with service fully restored by 3rd September 2020.
Consequently, once Manx Telecom had worked to restore the Island’s service, the Commission began a formal investigation to ascertain the facts surrounding the broadband outage and determine whether Manx Telecom had breached its regulatory obligations on the run up to, or as a direct result of, the outage.
Overall, having fully investigated the matter, the Commission finds that on this occasion Manx Telecom did not breach its regulatory obligations.
Further details of the Commission's investigation can be found in Information Notice 22/20.
