Well I can't say I'm impressed by their support so far. Was switched over this morning (aka disconnected from 2Degrees) and nothing works. Sent an email first thing this morning since that's the only way to communicate with them and haven't heard a peep since. So much for that 2 hour response time.. at least with 2degrees I could call someone when something goes wrong with the install. Can't say I rate their approach to support during the critical transition stage.

If it makes you feel any "better", it took them over 2 days to get me hooked up.  
I had it organised so that my disconnect from 2 Degrees and connection with Big Pipe should have been flawless, with a minimal outage in between. 

 

 Ah.. no. That is to say, Chorus did their job just fine - we went offline. I reconfigured the 7490 and then... it detected a connection just fine but was unable to actually connect. Probably just a case of my account not being activated or something. Something a phone call should have solved quickly. Or an email, in my case. 

 

 It did, it just wasn't very quick. Here's a quote from the email reply I received 2 days later:

Hi Erik,

 

Sorry for the delay in response about your connection issue. We have
just re-provisioned you on our end and can see an active connection
now. Can you confirm that you have a connection to the internet now?

 

Thank you for your patience :)

 

If you want to ask about the same question or give more information,
it'll make it heaps faster for us to help you out if you could reply
back to this email.

 

Cheers,

Note that I didn't had to change or do anything - the 7490 was already configured properly and it immediately connected. 

 

Ah, yes. Then again, trying to get through to 2 Degrees Support is also not exactly a blissful experience. And ultimately, my connection is a lot better now than it used to be - but that's more due to the Chorus upgrade than to any ISP. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

God, I miss Snap.

UPDATE: All sorted. Turns out the contractor configured a different port in my CNT. The settings posted here works.
