AB Internet, the suppliers of two CBS-supported projects, Loch Tay Internet and Gigaplus Argyll have today (19th May) confirmed that they are going into administration.
In a statement published on their website, AB Internet said:
"Following recent network outages and in order to best preserve the connectivity to all our clients, on the 18th of April 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 email@example.com."
We are disappointed by the news that AB Internet, the infrastructure supplier for two community-led broadband projects in Scotland, has entered into administration.
The Scottish Government and Community Broadband Scotland recognise the urgent nature of this situation, and stand ready to assist in ensuring continuity of service for the communities we are supporting. CBS is working to put contingency plans in place that will minimise disruption for the affected groups at Loch Tay and GigaPlus Argyll.
