Fibre speed has dropped off a cliff this evening

I've rebooted my modem and router, no better - was wondering if there are outages or problems this evening

I usually get around 28mb
Better be working by 9am tomorrow, I have to order some tickets that'll sell out in seconds Sad

Thanks

Where are you located? I'm in Newbury (trying to see if it's a regional thing)

Mine varies between nothing and 3mb. Normally high 60's.
Sat on hold for an hour trying to speak to someone and gave up, cracking customer service!

I tried just after 9pm but the queue was already 30 minutes and I guessed they'd probably all go home before I got an answer

Looks to be a fair few people complaining on Twitter, I'd wager we're not isolated incidents
