After a couple of days of problems, HSBC have announced that their personal and commercial online banking systems are now back to normal.
During the problems, personal banking customers were unable to login to their accounts, whilst business banking clients found their online banking working slowly. HSBC hasn’t given a definitive reason for the problems, but has blamed them on “complex technical issues”.
