Hey guys,

Internet is out, although I am able to access my webmail page and these forums obviously.

HELP!

It would appear that the external Bandwidth dropped, and is still drapped.

The optus IP is currently showing only 900mbps of the normal averafe 2,444mbps

North Sydney out, except for Exetel and Google. Bizarre. Just about to make a purchase on eBay too!

It would appear to be an issue with the optus IP links they are running poorly at the moment,

The Verizon link seems to have picked up some of the slack in the mean time, but I can only guess that until it is fixed (the Optus Link) we will all have degraded service.
