A network upgrade is due to take place in several areas of the UK, by the internet service provider Be Broadband, over the next six to eight weeks.
The decision to upgrade has been made because of congestion problems that the ISP’s customers have been experiencing for several weeks.
This has affected customers living in the North of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
The problems include slow speeds and high latency, especially during the peak hours.
The company has temporarily rerouted traffic so that their customers do not experience these problems at the moment.
Be Broadband has confirmed that the following areas will be given the upgrade: Brighton, Sheffield, Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Middlesbrough, Newcastle, Warrington, South Belfast, Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Preston.
