    Open Reach are having a nationwide maintenance event between 10pm and 6 am.
    They don't say what exactly it is other than it's nation wide.
    Your connection may slow down or even cut off now and again.
    So ... it's not you ... it's them.

    Maybe checking all our posts in case we are plotting something anarchic.
    Some threads on here would confuse them.

    I had no issues whatsoever last night-I'm on fibre optic though so don't know if that made a difference.

    From all the problems my mate has had with BT open reach, slow service is nothing new
