BT ridiculed after thousands lose internet connection

BT have been ridiculed on Twitter today after thousands of frustrated customers complained about internet outage.

The technical problem lasted several hours, prompting angry users to post tong-in-cheek complaints on social media.

The company, which provides broadband to seven million UK subscribers, said it was unable to say how many customers had been affected.

A BT spokeswoman said the problem has now been fixed. "There were problems with our broadband service earlier today but they were resolved. We're sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused," she said.
