Over 900,000 routers have lost internet access after disturbances on the Telekom Deutschland network on 27 and 28 November. A spokesperson for Deutsche Telekom told Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung the issue was with the identification of the routers at the dial-up point, not with the network as a whole. Deutsche Telekom launched a software patch on the morning of 28 November to correct the error.
