The official story was memory fault of some kind, not specified as being
corruption, hardware error, fragmentation or something else. Outage was 3
hours and reports have been posted stating that it not only affected their
broadband business but also their company/commercial customers.

No further details have been released to the swedish ISP community anyway, 
it's likely that they're still investigating and might or might not 
release further details.

I'm also curious.
