Same problem here as I got home tonight. I'm on Spark VDSL 150GB plan (have not gone over my cap), using a Technicolor TG589vn v2 VDSL modem and live near the Manukau area as well.

Lots of people having this fault

Here is my Router Status - so my connection to the Switch is fine.



Here is my Speedtest Result ... so the connection from the switch to the Core network must be at fault.



Help me diagnose and what action I need to take to repair my Broadband.

1) Have reseated my cables
2) Have rebooted my router and computer

Are any Spark people looking at this thread.  The situation seems to be widespread.
