I know this is often the first place I look when theres an issue going on, so seems fitting to share this time.

There is an issue with mobile connectivity in Invercargill city (appears to just be the city centre tower ).

Been ongoing since 1pm and 20mins ago the call centre didn't have a eta. 






If you have to run heating in winter, you don’t own enough computers.

Been out in Nelson since 3pm. Still out. I completely lost service for about 15-20 mins around 4pm.
Hard to check if theres a fault if you can't connect to the internet to check.
