Keep an eye on the hub status data. Maybe it was an area problem that has been fixed, but the live BQM shows that on Saturday the problems did not start until 12pm. I'm pretty confident that it isn't anything to do with network congestion, but it could be a noise fault that only becomes apparent when the network is busier, and as @lotharmat says yesterday's data points to an upstream problem.
