Microsoft’s mobile device management meltdown

InTune? Doesn’t sound like it to us

Microsoft UK’s online enterprise mobility device management service Intune suffered a near four-hour wobble this morning that was rectified early in the afternoon.

The firm ‘fessed up to “issues” and to “service degradation” on its online service status page at 9am.

“We continue to work on a configuration change to speed up the processing of the message backlog in order to mitigate impact,” the company admitted.

“This is expected to take an extended period of time. While this work is carried out, users will see gradual recovery,” it added.

Readers told us normal service resumed after lunch but they were not told the reason – or reasons – that caused the outage.

BT has apologised after “several hundred thousand” UK customers had their broadband services cut off.

Down detector, a website that monitors internet failures, reported thousands of cases, including in Glasgow, London, Birmingham and Sheffield.

At about 23:00 GMT BT said it was confident services had been “fully restored” but that some customers might need to reboot equipment.

The company said a faulty router was to blame for the problem.

BT phone services were unaffected by the outage, which began about 14:30 GMT.

A spokeswoman added: “Most customers will be able to access their broadband without taking any action but some may need to reboot their equipment.”

Hundreds of people took to social media to express their frustration using the hashtag #BTdown, which began trending on Twitter.
