Working in Dunedin.
I'm on a cabinet, so I assume it's a UBA connection?

Just tried to do a speedtest to Wellington, and I get a big red latency error on screen. Never had that before.

Overall speeds seem to be fluctuating a bit as well.

Pings to the usual Auckland speedtest server have jumped from the usual 37ms to around 78ms.

Something is up.
