Looks like Vodafone have a major outage as all our Vodafone clients have dropped offline.
Can't even get the main Vodafone website.

Our office is on Vodafone and can confirm - we've been offline for the last 20 minutes.

Everything has just started working again now.

No luck getting through to a Vodafone CSR!





1Gbps broadband looks like this on speedtests between cities.
Unmetered Ultrafast in Waikato, Bay of Plenty and Taranaki.

Yeah, had no ADSL or 3G for a few minutes just then. It's back up and running again now. Maybe it flooded? :P

mine went out at 2:18pm.. was off for exactly 10 mins before coming back up, in that time there was no actual loss of connection rather the routes to the internet was somewhat missing.. maybe part of their core network dropped?

Someone must have tripped over the power cable and it just took a bit to reboot the server. :D
Looks like they are coming back online now.

yep.. would think their network would be somewhat more resilient than to fall like that so easily though..
