So a peek at a massive thread elsewhere and a few people seeing single thread issues and signs on congestion on even multi-thread.
Is this widespread and thus ISP meltdown, or just the face of contention appearing on a few nodes for a few weeks on what is a consumer priced service?
I would run with something in between - there's contention somewhere on the consumer priced service and it seems fairly widespread though the cause is clear.
For me it hasn't been especially service affecting as I've been able to do everything I've wanted to. There has been some impact but as you rightly mentioned it is a pile high, sell cheap service.
Latency is higher at peak, speeds are slower, it's not been a killer.
For reference here's the current latency to the Beeb - it's excellent.
ping statistics ---
10 packets transmitted, 10 received, 0% packet loss, time 9016ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 12.420/12.475/12.689/0.102 ms
I'll post later once the congestion monster starts to do his thing.
