Just at work a few hours ago and my phone kept losing its connection - jumping between being on the network then 'Service Unavailable' - are they doing some work with the mobile phone network up there? I checked on the Spark website and didn't see any notification so I was wondering whether any maintenance that was being done was being done at a time no one cared. I'm not too worried either way - just curious.

Their maintenance window is normally between around 12am to 5am - it is likely they're doing some work whilst most people are asleep :)

Maybe workers cut a line while working on the new Broderick Road rail over bridge?

Everything is working as it should - funny enough I no longer get a 4G signal but the 3G connection I'm getting full 'dots' (I'm on an iPhone) for the signal strength. Possibly upgrades? Maybe they're getting rid of their Lucent-Alcatel equipment before the contract finishes and replacing it with Huawei gear? what ever the case maybe, everything is stable.

I'd say that if there was a line cut it would have fallen totally off the network where it was more like a yo-yo which makes me wonder whether they were bringing it back online, testing something, taking it back offline, doing some more testing, then putting it back online.

There is constant network upgrades that are occurring in both the mobile and fixed networks. It's something I have wanted posted publicly but the list would be very long.

So for now I suspect it was more network grooming work going on.

Oh well, I'm sure when the improvements come we'll experience them in the day to day usage.
