Recent drops & total users

Having received an email for Broadband network outage - Faraday (70805) - NEW I went to have a look at the number of customers using the network graph
You can also see the affect of last night's BT maintenance: http://usertools.plus.net/status/archive/1332326894.htm
What I did notice is the the total of users simultaneously connected is peaking at a whisker under 500,000 which puts the total number of users well past that figure.
I've attached a snapshot of the live graph.
The graph also illustrates that there are at least 40,000 users who don't leave their router connected 24x7.

Hmm, that explains it!
Bad timing!!  Angry Just as I was about to link up for a meeting in the US, 6pm their time... blip - internet light goes out. Argued with it for an hour and gave up.
I can't tell you what bad news that was for me...  Cry
Anyways, had to do the 'force a connection via the configuration pages' on router this morning to get back on and all's well now.
Although, looking at this again, the time is wrong. This was after midnight on 22nd...
whatever!!

I think that's the BT maintenance - the 2nd link I gave. The first dip in the graph is the early hours of this morning (22nd).
Why don't you sign up to receive the service status postings by email (if you haven't already): http://usertools.plus.net/status/email.php
Or there's an RSS feed of the same: http://usertools.plus.net/status/status.xml

Yes, I will, thanks. Didn't even realise I could do that.  Roll eyes Obviously I haven't snooped around enough here! Didn't know about the page you linked to either.
