We're on business Fibre and cant connect to any Google services at all.
All sites load slow, except maybe Facebook. Geekzone loads but after long waits.

We've contacted VF help and their 'reset your modem' suggestion didn't work.

Here's a traceroute to google:

Hi Arnies,

 A high priority fault was raised for some customers having issues accessing Google services yesterday morning, and marked as resolved around 4PM, so I'm concerned to hear you're having trouble with this today. Which DNS servers are you using?

EDIT: The incident has been reopened & is being investigated by the complex faults team.

Hi Nik,

We've been in contact with support today but thought I'd post here to see if anyone else has this issue. 
Still not fixed yet
