Any one else had their Orcon Gigabit fibre connection suddenly capped to 100mbps? As of ~6pm last night our connection has gone from a decent 800-900mbps to a constant 90-95mbps for both upload and download (even at 2am...).

 

No idea why this would happen as nothing has changed (and they just charged us for a month a 900mbps), has any one else seen this? As it's rather noticeably and annoying!

 

 

 

I've contacted them so we'll see what they say, so more of a PSA, in case this is happening to more than just us...

It's the internet have a hardwired homeserver that monitors internet speed hourly showing this. The wifi shows the same issue typically get 500-600mbps when downloading via wifi, and that's dropped to the same as the Ethernet connection and is happily pushing 500mbps to my NAS.

Actually that's a good point I should check the switches between the router and server.

Looks like one of the switches may have been at fault. No issues on any of the cables (all report 1GB connection) but resetting the switches and we've jumped back up to standard speeds.
