Seattle Network Maintenance, scheduled 3 years ago

There may be some brief packet loss at 07:30 GMT +1 on 18th July 2017 while we remove a carrier as the Seattle Internet Exchange (SIX) is undergoing maintenance.

The SIX say the maintenance will last 4 hours from 08:00 GMT +1 but the maintenance could be over as soon as 09:00 GMT +1, when the maintenance finishes, there will be a brief period of packet loss again.

UPDATE @ 09:47 GMT +1 - maintenance by the SIX is now completed.

There was a 2 - 6 minute network outage at the start of the maintenance while traffic shifted to our backup network. We are looking into ways to reduce this in future if possible.
