So, for the second time in a week I have lost my broadband connection. No other isp appears to have the issue on adsl (there websites show no issues). Is this just a glitch? or are they on a slide?
this comes on top of them charging for paper bills and inept cal centre staff not telling me about static ip address charges when I downgraded my plan. No sorry, no nothing. I really wonder why I should stay, I have only been with them for 30 years

What was the cause of your DSL outage? How's your wiring? Do you have a master filter installed?




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Residential xDSL is best effort and thus you can expect the odd outage on any ISP. Changing ISP's will not help your line stability as all ISP's get the odd issue.

Yes we are currently working on an issue in the Hamilton area for a number of our subscribers.
Yes it has effected the same customers that were effected earlier this week.  We hope to have the issue resolved shortly.

Sessions have started to restore.
We should have everyone up in the next 10 mins.

The vast majority of customers were back online by 10:42 after the remedial work had been done.

If you want to email me pl at spark.co.nz your line number and I can check if there are further issues with your line. I can't guarantee that there won't be any further outages since Retail Broadband is a best efforts service. But anything that is scheduled always happens after 1am.
