i have UFB running in Porirua. We have Orcon's full speed business package with their Cisco router.
It has to be honest been a pretty lumpy experience so far, but I remain optimistic about the ability of this tech to extend the geographical reach of my business internationally in a pretty exciting way. When its working (!) it has already demonstrated this power.
The big issue for us now is that we are experiencing pretty frequent outages (weekly at least). These all seem to require a router power cycle to recover from. Given that our office is not always staffed, often I'm needing to access things from overseas, and all our phones are now coming through the same connection, its no joke... my business, including all our various servers, completely disappears off the face of the earth for sometimes hours at a time till we can get someone onsite to power cycle the router.
Orcon have been painful to deal with and don't seem to have any answers.
I could probably live with the outages themselves (without enthusiasm, given our monthly bill!) but the apparent inability of the router to reconnect by itself is a serious issue. We solved this one years ago on ADSL by going to a decent USR router which did keep trying... is there a similar UFB-capable router out there we can buy? Or can anyone suggest a way to get an effective rocket under dear old Orcon on this matter?
Thanks all, any thoughts really appreciated... we ought to be th eabsolute poster-child argument for this technology, but honestly I'm starting to wish we'd stuck with boring old ADSL!
