I've been with vodafone/ihug since 1997 and while I was very impressed by the service TimA gave me in sorting out a VSDL2 problem (wasnt, then was, then wasnt available at my address), I have been concerned at impression that the relationship with sky has affected the service they provide such that when Fibre becomes available I will drop them and move to a different provider.

OK I will lose things such as the mysky HD ticket discount and the discount I get from my cell phone but I don't trust them to treat me as a customer as well as alternative provider might.

I'm a bit saddened that this issue has poisoned the relationship.

It's doesn't work perfectly every time (8210 errors still occur) but about 7 out of 10 plays are now working on Vodafone VDSL on Unotelly.

+1 for TimA.

While I appreciate the frustration with the Netflix issue, the presence of the Vodafone people on this site is something I welcome. They were very helpful recently with assisting with a service issue I had.

Banana?

Nice work from Vodafone. I guess their cogs just take a few more steps than some others to get moving, but once they start moving they work just as well.

Nice to see them respond to what is probably only a small percentage of their customers, but to do it anyway. I wonder if this will fix any other issues some have reported previously with their transparent proxy?

Props to Vodafone (and all the others already thanked in this thread!)

Vodafone UFB:

I've just played a whole bunch of random titles on my Roku 3. Performance is perfect (so far even better than before), with no buffering at all, titles playing instantly, and in Super HD quality almost straight away. Long may it stay that way!

Thank you Vodafone.

And as others have said already, thanks to the other ISPs and DNS providers for their input on here and keeping us all in the loop.

I have been lurking during this issue; I believe Vodafone will sort this as its not in their best interest not to, as people will keep coming across the transparent proxy they will keep raising cases 'death by a thousand cuts' comes to mind.  I would love to know when this is resolved the changes that were made by Vodafone this may help Geo DNS providers in future if we start running into other service related issues.

I know Vodafone are tight with Sky right now but if they are active in monitoring changes to viewing habits it is in their best interests to open up access as much as possible.

Good to hear there is investigation/fixing going on here from Vodafone. Hope it gets sorted ok.

The issue is not purely a Netflix issue and this is the key fact. The errors that have been discovered in the last few days could potentially affect any number of products/services and it deserves to be fixed - like any bug. The Netflix outages have just highlighted it to be a network configuration error. 

It is somewhat irrelevant who Vodafone partners with. If they partnered with TV3 would they think that broken access to TVNZ was ok?
As customers we also have a contract with Vodafone and that should be of some value.

I cant say that this has been Vodafone's proudest PR effort - but fixing the issue will make people forget.

How quick we forget. I'll be moving once my contract is up, why? Because of the posts from Vodafone reps on their forums. Will the threads on the vodafone forum eventually disappear probably, it's already been "edited".

But give it a week and all will be forgiven. :-/
