can someone explain why my once great connection has now gone haywire. It started about 8.00 am today and nothing i do my end makes it any better. I have rung Stuff but since i dont use their modem , they cant guarantee any speed and wont help me. It is the ping that worries me it is usually around 8, but now can go over 100 in NZ. Is it my end or is it a Chorus problem, stuff did say they had no other complaints so it cant be chorus, I am now stuck and do people think i should wait or keep hassling Stuff, who do admit i have a problem but cant do anything.

I'm with Mynxnet and appear to have the same problem. My downloads are sitting around 1 Mb/s, uploads are mostly unaffected, and ping is quite high. I logged a ticket at about 9:00 but I don't think they offer support on weekends.

 

It appears that both providers use Devoli...

Thanks for that link. I found a "status" page on Devoli's site that required a password so I have no idea how you managed to find that one!

 

I'm in the BOP, not Waikato, but presumably it's the same issue.

@vexxxboy If I recall correctly, you're in Rotorua? If you're in contact with Stuff Fibre then perhaps direct them to that status page and advise that you're having issues outside Waikato, just to ensure that Devoli is aware of the extent of the issue.

It seems Stuff know about the problem and yes it will affect Rotorua and i guess BOP. just keep an eye on the status page and wait.

2.30 pm A fibre-cut approximately 120KM south of Auckland has been identified and technicians are currently on-site repairing the break. At this time there is no ETR for full restoration but updates will be provided as they come to hand.
