Do you think it is possible that you may have a fault locally or on the line which is not related to the ISP? Just a thought.
Yes, that is possible, it is also possible that I have a problem with my router as my tablet and phone would not connect to it this morning.
Reset it, tablet and phone is working on it now, but everything is still slow, apart from internal network which seems ok.
I should have stayed where I was.
