Demon Internet suffered a large-scale outage today that left many users without email and some leased line customers without web access.
The Demon network status page has been lit up with red lights, which indicate a network problem, since early morning, when one of the company's data centres suffered an outage.
The page indicated that email servers were suffering since at least 11:30am. One angry user who contacted vnunet.com said that Pop3 access had been down since around 8am, although it was still possible to send mail.
Due to network routing problems some leased line customers were experiencing difficulty getting online and the entire D-commerce e-commerce system was down, affecting all customers who use Demon to power the back end of their online stores.
Demon was contacted but unable to provide comment.
