I spoke to VM yesterday wanted me to get an engineer out. Told them where to go as it was a network fault affecting the whole street and not my connection to the box. Explained to them they need to send someone to the box to take a look. They were having none of it.
So, Next door had VM looking at their system and i asked him whats the crack. Turns out after he spend a hours there, they have been doing work to the main hub for our area and haven't told customers. Everytime they turn the power out for that hub the net drops.
Made sense since the day before the internet was fine after 5pm (After they clock off).
Hope this clears everything up.
