ISP Be Broadband has admitted demand for iPlayer jammed its punters' net connections - leaving parts of the web unusable and subscribers fuming.
For weeks customers of Be - an O2-owned company with up to 600,000 users - were unable to visit some websites, including the BBC's telly streaming service, because the ISP's link to the Akamai content distribution network was saturated. A full fix isn't due until the end of April.
"Some Be customers are continuing to experience problems when running BBC’s iPlayer," Be's marketing boss Mark Nichols told The Reg.
"This is being caused by our link to the Akamai network, through which Be customers access BBC’s video services, operating close to capacity during periods of heavy demand."
