Anyone else having connection issues on snap fibre?

I've been using 100/50 fibre with Snap for almost 2 years without fault, but the last few days its been terrible, geekzone load slowly, other sites don't load at all (e.g. doesn't redirect to 2degressmobile), doesn't even load.

Suspect its a content delivery or connection issue upstream, as I can ping various NZ based servers for work.

Things haven't been incredibly fast over the last week on Snap but not bad overall. Haven't had any problems with sites not loading. I have 200/200 UFB on Snap.
IPV6? or 4? Tried disabling 6 and see if that makes a difference temporarily?

I have not noticed anything on my 200/200 connection.

1) Ensure you're not testing over WiFi.
2) Ensure you're testing with Snaps DNS servers.
3) Try to disable IPv6 on the Fritz!Box to see if it improves things.

Ipv6 is already disabled.
I'm not using a fritz, using my own Netcomm NF4V.

Using DNS servers: and

I can't even ping
But pinging (without www) works ok.

Funnily enough everything works if I use my 2degrees mobile data, just not via my fibre connection.

Just got a call back from Snap/2D, apparently my static IP was blacklisted due to malicious traffic? They couldn't say what traffic, just malicious, perhaps from a device having a dictionary attack or something (like my qnap NAS).

Going to check NAS is up to date now, and check logs...
