Ah no broken again. Shows we should have been more proactive in shifting services to IPv6!

Anyone else having issues tonight? All day I've had stupidly slow browsing of anything overseas, trying to run a speedtest to Sydney, 700ms and it can't even start the download test, local speeds are fine. Rather annoying!

Disconnected once last night, once this morning and once more this afternoon. Been having terribly slow speeds the majority of the day, especially tonight.

Very slow international here as well. 

Downloaded an Ubuntu distro from Canterbury Uni at 8.8MB/s so national seems to be fine but I get less that 100kB/s from overseas.

Logged a call with Orcon support who advised the fiber team would monitor my connection for up to 2 days... so I guess I will wait and see what happens.

Pretty terrible here. Had to restart my modem a couple of times this morning, my boss' said he was having issues with his connection too. Been having issues with Spotify streaming all evening too, as well as YouTube in recent times.

Interestingly enough my IPv6 tunnel traffic doesn't seem to be affected (Hurricane Electric tunnel to California).

Also seeing a bunch of packet loss to international links. Also doesn't explain why I'm getting better speeds to Vodafone than I am to Orcon.

High ping time for on line gaming. Big lag spikes making it unplayable (servers in the US). Noticed youtube slow last few days.

Its quite bad for me here too.

Some pages take a long time to load, load in small parts at a time. The occasional bad gateway. Around midday yesterday I lost connectivity to half the world (from my pov) anandtech, tomshardware, geekzone all refused to load.

Its a bit crappy. Ive noticed issues (Slow page loads sometimes) for the last week.

Oh yeah I also couldn't use youtube last night. The frontpage would load, but no thumbnail previews, and if i clicked on one, nothing happened.

I fix stuff!

Adding to the pile:

Speedtests to Auckland servers from Auckland (Howick exchange) yields about half the typical rate - so about 7 Mbps as opposed to the usual 14 Mbps

International downstream rate has plumeted as well, 2.93 Mbps to Telstra Sydney, 0.48 Mbps to Dreamhost in California

Upstream rates are still normal across the board, both locally and internationally at about 1 Mbps.

Latency has definitely increased internationally by 50ms to 100ms
