The administrators were probably concerned with ensuring that they had
identified who owned what, I would imagine a similar scenario in Ch 11
actions. However my understanding is that when the KPN administrators
walked in they kept the business running for as long as possible, certainly
in the Netherlands they were routing packets for a few weeks after they
were appointed, I don't know about the data centres, but they  did not just
switch everything off as soon as they arrived.
