This is a problem with customers on the EX-NTL side which you are on, and the hits normally take a maximum of 7 hours but as in your case can take longer.
You will need to call on one of the numbers that I will post below, but please be aware you will keep being asked to reboot your modem until the hits actually go through.
No rebooting of your modem means no internet and I am one those people who would ask you to reboot it.
Please do not pretend either as we can tell if you have not rebooted because you will still have no connection.
