Anyone have connection issues between midnight and now?

It's very rare experience issues at all, but I noticed a connection drop about five past midnight.  I rebooted the router and when it got back online the connection was flaky.  Speed was obviously off, and I noticed lots of packet loss showing up on  Approx ten minutes later the connection stabilised and I'm getting a solid 68Mbps again.  Anyway, about 10-15 minutes ago it happened again and this is what I found in my Asus router's log...

I'm just wondering if a problem has developed my end or if Plusnet is wonky tonight.

Re: Anyone have connection issues between midnight and now?

Have you checked their service status for your area ?  I work unitl midnight and when I came home last night, my 21 yr old son said he had been having drop outs on his wired PC all afternoon, every 5 minutes or so and for anout 10 seconds. I switched my PC on and in the half hour I was online, I experienced about 7 drop outs.
I checked the service status and it appears they are doing some sort of work between midnight and about 6.00 am, in certain areas, however mine is not one of them. I contacted online chat about 10 minutes ago and had a conversation, where the extremely nice guy said, and I quote "The line is dropping on our side, so I'd like you to log this as being a fault using the link below", which I have now done. So hopefully that will be the end of it soon, although it hasn't dropped once thie morning in the last half hour I have been online.
Here is the link to the service status page
Hope this helps.
