To be clear, all instances are working normally it's the network access to the OVH data centers that is affected as traffic that was passing on the POP that is down is over loading the alternative routes.
Some users will not be affected at all (in Europe everyone should be able to access without a problem) but other locations can experience the slowdown.
Until the issue is solved the only work around is to use a VPN with the location set to Europe.
OVH is still working on repairing the fiber cable but there is progress on the network and some locations are back to normal.
Still no ETA for the issue to be fully resolved.
The problem with users from certain locations experiencing slowness in access and usage is now solved.
Please let me know if you have any issues.
