Look here https://www.bt.com/consumerFaultTracking/public/faults/tracking.do?pageId=31

Openreach must have a cable or cabinet failure.

Then its either an exchange fault, or an issue with the cable from the exchange to the main cabinet. If a neighbour has normal broadband, then that would be out, as it comes from the exchange, so a cable fault is nost likely.

That sounds about right. Those old "E" side cables are a common target for a number of reasons.
