BT have raised an RFO (Request For Outage), they already have an open incident regarding Stepney Green (where our fibres terminate) which is also under investigation. This means that they were already aware of a problem and are investigating.

Interesting to know that A&A have fibres that terminate at Stepney Green . . . for I know that location from the early 1980s.

Does an ‘RFO’ mean that they are intending to bring the network down, because of further work?

There were further disruptions in the night.

I was puzzled when I saw that abbreviation and, considering your latest question, I wonder if your interpretation is correct? My answer is "I don't know." Perhaps you could ask A&A?  :-\

No, an RFO (Request For Outage) is just that.
There was an unplanned outage, BT raised an RFO to find out why.

It doesn't mean there will (or won't) be further outages.

So perhaps it should be a four letter abbreviation RRFO (Request Reason For Outage) or even a five letter one RRFRO (Request Reason For Recent Outage)?  ;)  :D

I've always known RFO to mean Reason for outage.
As in "We've requested an RFO from BTWholesale"

I wasn't in a rush to correct Andrew's update on the AA Status page. I trust his meaning to be correct, or it's 1 of these acronyms with double meaning.

I concur with j0hn ....... 'Reason For Outage' in this instance.

There are un-related RFO's on provision work, (Reason For Order).
