      Same here - I ended up with a new IP.

      However, it has gone down again this morning at about 750am

      Anyone else down?

      Still up here (at the moment!) but a couple of people have reported Fibre down since 07:50 over on Sky's forum.

      Re: Fibre connection down

      I actually don't mind if it is down completely - I am having some work done on the front of my house and was concerned they'd buggered up my line - but I don't know how the telephone lines get to the house. They probably don't run through my front lawn to be honest (Which is in the process of being removed...)

      no outage at my end, been streaming netflix for the last few hours.

      it must of gone down some time ago though for a few mins as my ip address is now a 176.255.x.x and my ping times have gone up between 5-8ms to around 16ms on average

      Re: Fibre connection down

      Mine went down last night just after midnight.

      Rebooted the sky router and back up again with yet another new IP.

      Seems when the IP changes the sky router can't deal with it or just falls over.

      Time for a visit to no-ip.com I think.

      Mine has been down all day today, but I have been in work, so not really been able to do anything about it.

      Reboot of the BT Openreach modem got me back online - though it is very odd!
