Do they do maintenance over the Bank Holiday?

[link to this post]
My speeds have been useless over the weekend - so low that none of the speedtesters would load and it took over a minute for a simple page to display. Suddenly this morning I have 18.8Mbs via ethernet and 15Mbs over wireless. I didn't do anything except reboot the modem and router a few times. 'Essential maintenance'? I'm in SE London. Shouldn't they warn us if this is going to happen?

Advent laptop/Dell Inspiron 6000/Dell mini all using XP and 2GB RAM
Dell Studio 15 with Win7 64bit and 4GB RAM
Belkin N cable router (VM 20Mbs)
Voyager 2100 via BT line (8Mbs) as backup
BT Option 3 / Virgin cable 20Mbs
IE8 and OE6 (Live Mail with Win7)

I suppose they could warn about scheduled maintenance but if it's essential maintenance it sounds like it's too late. Did anyone else suffer?
