Iffy connection all afternoon and now no connection at all

Really frustrated at how lacking the service has been. Please could you confirm if there are any known issues with our line
Thanks

I don't think you and I are the only ones suffering at the moment. Packet loss, high latency and intermittently slow speeds (well when I say slow I mean zero)..

I probably would have been less frustrated if it hadn't finally collapsed about 15mins before the end of Whiplash. Well hopefully I can catch the rest later

Still no connection this morning. DSL light flickers occasionally but mainly off. Logged a fault, could you let me know if it came through please as it didn't ask for any details, just immediately said 'logged'
Thanks

Where in the world are you? Mine dropped 20:45 last night in Porthcawl, South Wales with no DSL light showing. I am currently holding to report the fault.

It's a pain - but the bright side is that you know what the problem is and hopefully it will get fixed pretty quickly (especially if you're not the only one affected).
I was showing ping spikes of 150ms with packet loss yesterday pm and evening. Had an early night for once!
Just gateway hopped again and I've landed on pcl-bng02 (the busiest gateway of the lot??).
