Regional Engineering & Repair Delays - Update Earlier today we received notification from BT Openreach that they have updated what they refer to as an MBORC (Matter Beyond Our Reasonable Control) in certain areas of the country. This has the potential to cause fault resolution delays due to recent bouts of severe weather.


A copy of the notice is as follows:


"Parts of the UK, in particular the South West and East Anglia, were hit with severe storm conditions with heavy rain and lightning strikes between Thursday 18 and Friday 19 September 2014.


Therefore along with our suppliers we declared MBORC for repair activities, in the following areas, with effect from 23:59 22 September 2014


Swindon

Southampton


We are now able to remove MBORC for repair activities from the following area


Southampton


We will be monitoring the situation and will remove MBORC from the remaining area as soon as service can be restored to levels they were at immediately before the severe weather."
