The issue is affecting (and has affected) quite a few folk:

It occurs to me that this, could, perhaps be CDN specific.

I'm currently not in Johannesburg, but last time I checked, the majority
of Windows updates were being handled by Akamai. Perhaps this is where
the issue could be, although we have got local IPv6 peering with Akamai
and don't generally have issues with it.

I'll dig deeper into how Akamai may be involved when I get back home.

Thanks for the pointers.

Mark.
