As a business, this is the last thing you want to see.

In the last few hours, thousands of businesses suffered a complete Internet outage. It transpired that the collapse of ISPs Fast.co.uk, firenet and 186k meant that businesses were completely cut off from their customers, at a crucially busy time.

This is an image of the message they sent out to their customers:

Fast.co.uk & Firenet sent out a message to customers informing them to seek other providers.

Fast.co.uk & Firenet sent out a message to customers informing them to seek other providers.

This advised customers to seek alternative connectivity arrangements, as they were unable to continue to supply their current service.

Fortunately switching over to a new provider is usually free of cost and can be performed in a matter of hours, getting you up and running with minimal downtime.
