Pop over to TBB and see if anyone else has seen anything similar. This could be something going on from their side & connection which of course wouldn't show on yours. Have you had a look at any other TBB graphs ( I haven't but my curiosity is getting the better of me)

I lost connection for a couple of minutes at about 01:45 on Tuesday morning.

I realise this was 24 hours beforehand, but timing suggests the usual overnight PEW. The announcement only shows the 30th and 31st October, but I'd be surprised if it wasn't all week as usual.
