Today my ADSL internet connection was really really slow.
I initially thought it might be something at my end, but a quick check of my ISP’s status reports showed that they were having issues with a specific gateway (and it was the gateway I was connected to).
Despite turning off my router (as recommended by my ISP) intially my speeds remained poor and with little connectivity.
A few hours later it does seem back to normal. With such poor connectivity it makes me realise how dependent I am on my internet connection for everyday stuff, as well as entertainment and information.
