UUNET customers will be relieved to hear the ISP has now fixed the problem that prevented many users accessing US-based Web sites.
UUNET customers were suffering this morning due to a major service outage emanating from the US side of the ISP's operations. Worried consumers contacted ZDNet reporting major difficulties connecting to .com sites.
But this afternoon, a UUNET spokesperson said the undisclosed problem had been found and fixed.
"Everything is back to normal. Service was stabilised and resumed at 7:30am eastern standard time, or 2:30pm in the UK," she said.
