Me to, I haven't been able to connect to any international sites since about 5am.
Nothing on the Slingshot Network status page either.

You're not alone. I was watching the stream and shortly before 5am (maybe 4:45) my stream just stopped and all international traffic time outs.

I've changed dns to googles but same issue.
Really dissapointing. Slingshot has been crap lately.

Hi guys,

There was some planned work last night and it appears some people may have been affected by this for longer than expected. A standard modem Reboot should have resolved the issue but I'm hearing that this may not have helped. Hopefully everyone is back to normal now, I apologise for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
