An insider's report that Virgin Net had suffered power outages was firmly denied by the company today.
According to a contractor who worked for Virgin Net, power systems at a site in Soho suffered severe spikes when staff plugged in electric fires and kettles to cope with the cold weather.
But a representative at Virgin Net said systems there were fine. She said: "We've got two sites both of which are telco environments - the same standard as 999. The UPS has battery backup of 40 minutes plus a diesel generator in case it fails. That's been in place since the start. The servers are distributed and mirrored so there's no danger to end users."
