Most of the online banking services of the Lloyds Banking Group are down this morning. Not a good start.

They've both had extensive refurbs within the last two years, I wonder if it's been unveiled as they're already good to go.

Lloyds TSB website is back up but not running (ie no online banking). Makes you question their judgement of relaunching on a Monday, the busiest banking day of the week.

Only noticed when the new signs were unveiled this morning that the new LLOYDS BANK logo is different to the one that has been used for the past few years.

These are the logos that have been used on Lloyds Bank Commercial and Lloyds Bank International, using the same font as the Lloyds Banking Group logo:

While the new logo popping up on branches and literature is actually more rounded, with a slightly awkward 'smiling' A:

What's the bet that the recently revamped branches like the one below, which feature the uppercase LLOYDS TSB logo and were presumably set up ready for 'TSB' to be simply swapped with 'BANK', will end up inconsistent from the off:

It is a wonder no one noticed that before. I guess if they're going to replace the lettering for TSB on those logos they might as well replace all the lettering. The Lloyds font will be inconsistent with Bank of Scotland now though, unless they change that as well.

Most branches have had refurbs within in the last two years, round here at least. Not really sure why that would come into it really.

Well I'm standing in a very long queue at Lloyds on Cardiff Queen St and there is no change inside with all Lloyds TSB branding still in use.

The only notable change is the staff appear to be wearing new uniform and name badges.

I think it's the previous Lloyds TSB website with some slight tweaks, isn't it?

Why have some Lloyds branches made the change and others not? The nearest branch to me remains a TSB.
