SpinVox negated by London Digger; Service rendered Class F

But they’re back.

Some enterprising arse with a JCB Digger cut through some major fibre optics in London yesterday afternoon, killing most (if not all) of their UK/European SpinVox inbound telecommunications facilities.

Bit of an arse, eh?

Especially if you’re a billion dollar communications company. I’m not sure who their telecoms supplier is — but if it’s Global Crossing, then this Register story has more info.

At least SpinVox didn’t do the Skype-thing and blog about how much pizza they’re eating to try and fix it.

If you were wondering what was up with your SpinVox service last night, there you go.

All fine now.
