The slowdown began shortly after 7PM according to Internode, with customers from Telstra, Optus and iiNet among others all confirming slow speeds with significant packet loss. The Internet Traffic Report, the internet equivalent of a weather bureau, is not currently showing any abnormal activity.
No ETA is currently available for a fix to the problem.
To be honest I didn't feel anything. I use Optus. How did everyone else find this?
