While some of the increase in the blue any yellow on my connection is accounted for by activity on my network. I do find the similarities between the graphs striking. It could indicate a general problem on the route between Virgin and TBB in Sheffield
I had a 5-minute glitch connecting to my Works servers in west Yorks yesterday (I am in the Birmingham area myself), however, I could still connect to BBC News website.
It should be noted that the major packet loss also appeared to last longer than 5 minutes on the graph, But I was able to continue working during most of the time the packet loss was showing.
I really should get an f8lure graph up and running again so I can compare the two next time.
I'd be curious to know the general regions you guys are in.
