Can somone post what a 'good' tracert would be to any of the BT/Google etc sites - I'm having a bit of difficulty in even getting to our gaming server now even for Admin (not playing) purposes - ping rates are thru the roof and the command consol quickly becomes unresponsive (probably due to lost packets).
It would be good to have a comaprison. Thanks

Thanks but was that a log from before these problems? - Just wondered things have improved in the last hour or so - guess it's bedtime which made my initial comments about load balancing / congestion issues seem more logical. I will wait till a busy time tomorrow before comparing and posting tracelogs.
The status page now shows "Time resolved: Sat 13/12/2014 at 08:22".
Certainly things have been working well here in Clacks this morning. Time will tell I guess.
Given the amount of longstanding grief this has caused customers and the way callers to the help line were dealt with, I would appreciate:
- an explanation from BT (perhaps via the Mods) of what went wrong
- an announcement of how their internal procedures are being changed to detect this kind of systemic problem in the future
