Deployment of Additional capacity

We are pleased to announce that we have now activated an additional 155Mbps segment of central bandwidth.
The new capacity has been activated in line with the current budget and in response to the launch of our recent Broadband Pro gaming product.
Customers connecting to the new segment will be terminated on a new gateway named pcl-ag01:

When new capacity is added to the network, it takes time for the network to balance and for a representative proportion of the customer base to connect to the new segment. In order to speed up this process and help balance the platform to give the most benefit to customers, it may be necessary for us to temporarily disconnect a number of customers from the network. Should we take the decision to do this we will announce further details as a planned maintenance notice.
We frequently review our plans for the purchase of additional capacity and will continue to do this based on projected customer numbers.
You can discuss this announcement at this link.
Kind Regards,
