Hmm
My national traffic works fine for me. Trademe or nz herald and I can ping all local stuff just not international.

But I'm sure they will be well aware of the issues just wanted to check with others :)

Mine too - NZ sites loading fine, but nothing else. The Spark faults line is engaged and status map shows no issues. I'm 50th in online chat queue and have been for the last 10 minutes.

Looks like Spark is dead.

 

All support numbers and 0800 000000 even from inside and outside their network aren't working.

Now I remember why I don't have broadband and mobile with the same provider. Vodafone 4G is working fine. 

 

Mind you I don't have enough data on my plan to watch this week's episode of The Grand Tour.....

I'll just add to it, down for our Spark Broadband at home.

I do love how their official outage page isn't even updated. Apparently everything is running just fine but obviously not when the map service running on the page isn't even loading.

We're aware of issues affecting mobile and broadband customers right now, we're looking into it urgently and will update when we know more.
