jeeg: Yes I use adblockers, but the issues happen on twitter app on my iPhone as well.

I did a quick continuous ping to 219.88.188.5, not sure how long I was supposed to leave that running.

Can you try using a browser with no adblocker please? I'm not saying forever, I just want to see if that has an impact. (Yes I saw your comment about twitter on your phone being affected as well)

And for the continuous Ping, I meant to leave that running for a long time, so that when you experience issues you can flip to that window and see if there are pings being dropped or if the latency is going through the roof.

Finally someone with the same issue. I am just up the road in sunnynook

I am having exactly the same issue. I have the technicolor router with an additional router running the lan.

I have vdsl and have never had any issues until about 3 or 4 weeks ago. Consistently intermittent on every website, the majority of them won't load without constant refreshing, then everything works for a few minutes then stops again.

It seemed to be worse on apple devices and have also bought a new router but have the same issues.

However, I am sat here now streaming bc iplayer with no issue, although Netflix US doesn't work too well.

I am getting 28 up, 9 down with 9ms ping from the Spark Auckland speediest server so something else must be up.

I have thought that it could be dns and have updated all of the devices, but this still doesn't explain why it just changed a few weeks ago.

Any ideas would great, I was about to ring Spark but found this post.

I've tried using Firefox with no extensions (fresh install) and it's still happening. When I check the pingtest when the problem occurs, I still get the same pings with no drops and no big spikes.

The problem seems to have worsened this morning. Now I'm getting very high pings to every server.

222.152.169.*

All the IPs I am seeing listed are part of the 16K addresses of 222.152.128.0/18 i.e. between 222.152.128.1 and 222.152.191.254.  That is the AS4771 BGP announcement https://www.robtex.com/route/222.152.128.0-18.html

Well, I'm glad it seems to be better for everyone reporting these specific symptoms today, but I have to admit that we didn't find a root cause or make any changes that are likely to have fixed what did look like an issue.

We localised the issue to a single BNG and were in the process of collecting details of affected customers so we could make some changes to their individual configurations to see if we could restore performance (and isolate the root cause at the same time) when the issue stopped.

If any of the same users experience a recurrence of the issue, please drop me a line and we can carry on with the troubleshooting. There is absolutely no point in trying anything while the performance is ok though.

Thanks for your patience and the details provided so far.

Cheers -N
