Incredibly slow speeds

Hi all
I the last hour or so, I have been getting incredibly slow download speeds but fine upload speeds.  Normally, at this time of day it slows down about 3 - 5 MB/s as more people are on but the last speedtest, I am getting speeds of 1.14MB/s and upload speeds of 13.68MB/s.

What could be causing this? I see that some maintenance is happening but surely that cannot be causing it?

and another

Re: Incredibly slow speeds

+1 on this.
It's awful tonight

Normally I am 37+ down.
BTW tester shows normal speeds, so the issue looks like it's on Plus Net.

Re: Incredibly slow speeds

My speedtest results are back to normal after the problems over the weekend, but the "snappiness" just isn't there tonight.

Re: Incredibly slow speeds

We worked around the faulty link which was causing the packet loss issue at about 8ish last night.    Did it speed back up after then?
