Zen service dead

To all intents and purposes, the Zen network has died.

I can access my server at home, so it's not dead for me.

Current on Zen, getting around 5mb down - .8mb up
Exchange is Fibre enabled, Cab not economically viable to upgrade - though 'Now Exploring Solutions aka we want someone else to pay for it.'

You must be one of the lucky few. The status page says that they have had a fibre break in their network.

My speeds have dropped from 68/16 down to 1/5 with lots of packet loss.

Been seeing lots of packet loss on my BQM, plus everything feels sluggish, since this morning:

IDNet seem to be suffering the same, or very similar, problem. Instead of my usual 38/8.5 I'm getting 5/8.5 which is slightly better than the 1.5/8.5 earlier.

I was on the net all night overnight and the problems started around 4am when I noticed I was downloading at 500KB instead of 7MB, I contacted support as I didn't notice anything on their status page at the time. My speed went from 66mbit to 2mbit on the official speed test, which it still is now. I am guessing this is the reason.

Ouch. They must be running the network really hot then if they haven't got sufficient diversity that they can move traffic via other routes without causing that much of a drop in bandwidth.
