zonky: I'm curious, what is the level of planning on redundancy on the XT network? 4 or 5 9's?
I wou;dn't imagine any mobile network would ever pledge to offer 5 or even 4 9's of uptime.
zonky: Interestingly i have reports of a roaming user in Oz intermittently unable to make calls. Should this incident affect roaming users?
bradstewart: Interestingly there didnt seem to be any outage here in Dunedin. I've been using my phone continously for the last couple of hours including calls to others around the area on XT.
<br>@bbman... - "Telecoms XT core network is continually failing" seems to be a little bit over the top. I recall only one major disruption to the network during the day before this.
I compare this to the Vodafone service I can't get any at all... Sitting in my office in a CBD building where there are THREE vodafone stores and not a single bar of reception on two different phones. I'll take XT and it's very occasional outage any day.
