Hi, been a customer for sometime and have noticed a massive dedegration in call quality and usability this year.  WorldXchange helpdesk point the finger at congestion and we’ve downgraded our codec, but trying to make or receive any call during the evenings (like when we’re actually at home) is a true waste of breath.

 

Any suggestions?

 

I know a guy in Telecom who wants our business and despite the separation actually should be able to pull strings with Chorus if required.

 

Happy to remain a loyal customer, but ONLY if I can have a usable product.

I can confirm these issues are 110% related to local congestion at your exchange/cabinet.  

I'll have a word to our Service Delivery Manager at Chorus however the Service Specifications around UBA/BUBA are fairly low ;
