    Do you know if this is leftovers from the ddos or is this a new and fun issue all of its own?

    I've had some dropouts too - very brief ones but definitely there.
    Download speeds are silly too - it is going to take 65mins to download a new wireless driver, apparently - yeah,right..

    Yeah - we have. Speed for us dropped to floor - we should be on 32Mbps, currently getting less that 3Mbps.

    I have logged a call.

    Yep "some people in the SWG area are having connectivity problems" according to someone @ SWGFL. We had slow internet from 14:20 to 14:40 but all seems ok now.

    It won't help anyone with this issue, but did you know you can get text message alerts from SWGfL?
    I didn't until I last rang to rant about speed/connectivity issues. I received a text at about 2.20pm today making me aware of the issue - quite a useful service.
