I guess there is a significant demand on the network at the moment, I cannot stream youtube or spotify, anyone else having issues?

Quite an interesting read...


Surprising that the network is nearing capacity with a third extra traffic. Thought with UFB growing at such a rate it would have a much higher ceiling.

I would ask if you are using a non Spark supplied router and / or non Spark DNS service and have you rebooted your router?


As those three factors are 99.9% are most likely the issue.

Turns out my computer was just being difficult, worked fine on my phone, finally re-booted computer after having display issues, working fine, removed said telco name from thread title as it is an unfair claim especially at this time when the problem was obviously my end

Well hindsight is good but at the time it didn't appear to be a problem on my end, spotify simply did not play and youtube had the typical 'experiencing playback issues?' message even after rebooting my browser & modem. I don't know how or what caused it but running fine after reboot may be an obvious first step fault finding for some but like I say hindsight is good.

Also it’s given people something to do for 30 mins. What harm did it cause essentially asking/confirming that no one else had issues .
