I just called 1236 (for a different issue) - the IVR has a prompt saying there's a technical issue.pings have jumped from 138ms to 152 in last few days. Yesterday they were at 178ms. Today 214ms with huge packet losses.
Ping to Google DNS 126.96.36.199 is 108ms now before it was 38ish ms.
Nayatel and other ISPs, rejoice (if they've switched providers).
