Temporary Internet drop out?

I had an Internet failure around 3.45pm today, seems to have been cleared now (obviously!). Anyone else experience this? Rebooted my PC, made no difference. Left router running.

Did not seem to be at my end, did not seem to be Plusnet DNS servers as IP addresses were returned. But serious package loss:

Yes, seems to have been a routing issue somewhere

Re: Temporary Internet drop out?

Yes, same here (Sheffield) - connection not dropped, just throughput too low to measure.

I blame the kids blitzing the system en masse and all at the same time on returning home from school! 🤔 😉
