    Connections been fine (touch wood) as usual however some sites I visit have been 'slower' to transfer stuff and in some cases the video quality is slightly (enough to notice imo) lower too.

    So like usual, it's the infrastructure at the server end which is the issue, not my connection...

    Re: Openreach shares Covid-19 UK network traffic report

    Not had an issues myself. Been amazed how my wife and I can both work from home on a 20mbps line. Still hoping this is a wake up call to speed up FTTH as I'm getting fed up with FTTC getting slower and slower (my line use to be 30mbps 7 years ago when we first went FTTC).
