AB Internet

Delivering Superfast broadband across rural Britain

Following recent network outages and in order to best preserve the connectivity to all our clients, on the 18th of May AB Internet served formal notification of its intent to place the company into administration with an aim to sell the company as a going concern, either as a whole, or, as a number of separate and logical geographic elements and so transfer our customers seamlessly to a new network operator. Any potential purchasers should contact AB Internets appointed Administrators, James Patchett and Martin Armstrong of Turpin Barker Armstrong by email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

AB Internet is now engaging with several internet service providers to take over the service across the UK and to ensure service continuity for the customers during the administration process. Priority has been given to the small number of customers unlucky enough to be in an area with service interruption and we are anticipating full service restoration to all customers within a few days.

A quick update to reassure customers who are waiting to be transferred over to their new service providers, we are in negotiations with several regional operators to ensure a seamless transition without compromising the availability of your service. The last few remaining customers who are in areas where there is still a disruption in service are now our highest priority and we are anticipating reconnection within the new few days. More information will follow. Please bear with us whilst we transfer your service to your new service provider, we are not anticipating any disruption to your internet connection or service during this process.

Whilst 95% of the AB Internet UK wide infrastructure remains operational, we are continuing to work as fast as we can to restore services to the last few affected customers. Please see below for specific updates on local network segments.
The Black Isle: We are working with BT to provision temporary backhaul to reconnect the service to all users as soon as possible whilst in dialogue with bidding service providers. We continue to expedite these works and are receiving full cooperation from all parties involved.
Grosmont & Cross Ash: Despite recent press claims, the network infrastructure near the border of England and Wales has been fully operational throughout this process with the exception of only one infrastructure site near Grosmont. We are working on a resolution to this as fast as possible and have been engaging with local authorities and the local community to affect a fix as fast as we can.
Goldcliff: As with the Black Isle, we are working with BT to install temporary infrastructure for us so we can re-enable services to the small number of affected users near the mouth of the River Severn. We will continue to work over the bank holiday weekend to restore the last few connections as fast as possible.

At long last, we are able to use Skype video to the other half of our family in New Zealand. We watched as our UK grandchildren age 7 and 5 met their New Zealand cousins age 6, 5 and 1, for the very first time, live on camera. They talked about their Lego and dinosaurs, as kids do. The video was ...
