Yes lost wireless broadband around 6.10 pm but still working on mobile and can’t get through to customer service. When I log into the Huawei there is a message saying ‘Please check if you owe any fees’ lol

G'day Folks

 

Same here:

 

  • Phone throws error message "Could not activate mobile data network. PDP authentication failure".
  • My Account not working (neither the app nor via desktop using different ISP).
  • Customer Service puts on hold, plays some music then disconnects.
  • Chatbot on website keeps resetting network.
  • Am on post pay (yes, bill has been paid).
  • Am in Wellington.

Cheers, Gobit

1x fibre connection down, others still up including other VDSL
Fixed wireless connection (Taupo) still working (can log in remotely still)
Voice and texting working
My Vodafone not working

Mobile data should be back up now, if your device is still not connecting the advice is to restart and try again. Note 777 may still be slammed so ymmv if you need to call...

@jjnz1 the info I’ve seen only talks about a loss of mobile data services, and the specific system that was mentioned isn’t related to copper/fibre/HFC so your fibre outage is probably unrelated.

Yep I had this too, no mobile data for about an hour. Tried calling 777 to see what's going on, "Welcome to Vodafone". <click>

 

What was the issue, just out of interest? The linked article mentions 4G data issues - but I couldn't get anything on 3G either.

Apologies everyone for the inconvenience. Tonight we did experience a nationwide issue impacting mobile data services. We can confirm however that all issues affecting mobile data are now resolved, and will continue to be monitored and investigated further.

 

 

 

If you're still experiencing issues, kindly reboot your mobile phone and try again.

So - what happened with this outage? I noticed it affected both 3G and 4G, not just 4G like it said.
