BT's network went offline across large swathes of the UK on Wednesday, with thousands of complaints flooding into the downdetector website about the issue. However, the incident now appears to be resolved.
Reports ranging from Scotland to London, Cornwall and South Wales, were all logged while customers also took to Twitter to complain, with some even wondering if the firm had been hit by a DNS attack.

BT told V3 that only a "small number" of customers were affected and that the incident was short-lived.
“A small number of BT customers had difficulty accessing certain websites or applications for less than ten minutes this afternoon," it said.
“We are continuing to investigate this and there are currently no indications that it was an issue with our network.”
