Following the successful re-route of lines, all impacted traffic for Ayr, Alloway, Prestwick, Drongan, Maybole, Annbank and Delmillington exchanges are now fully restored. Customers connected to Girvan Exchange will remain impacted for the duration of this Incident. Engineers identified the outage has been caused by damage to Openreach’s fibre in several places caused by rodents. Approximately 500 metres of fibre cable will need to be laid in order to restore service. As the affected cabling runs over the A77, a road closure will have to be arranged in order to allow Openreach to perform this work. This is estimated to be Monday 13th November. This is impacting all other providers who are using Openreach’s fibre in this area.
