I'm on Skinny - can now call / text however mobile data is gone. Got worse when I rebooted the device since it took around 20mins to register to the network again.

 

Thank goodness for gigabit broadband - downloaded my music playlists for the train :) Will just keep my mobile radio turned off until it settles down.

Fibre broadband still variable here in North Shore. After rebooting every device and checking cables I am getting waves of connectivity/no connectivity. Very frustrating.

Have had no service on phone all afternoon in Auckland. The Herald reported Spark told them it was all fixed. Clearly a load of bull to avoid the negative publicity.

My phone has been registered back to the Skinny network about 30 mins ago.  However, still no data connection.

I've had no spark mobile service since about 9.20 this morning.

 

It magically started working again at about 4.05pm - full bars of signal strength, 4g goodness etc etc, however then about 20minutes later all gone again.... back to zippo.

 

 

 

So, sounds a bit BS about 'all fixed just wanting for authentication backlog'

Spark's social media & media relations team are currently working from 'alternative facts' about the network.
