I am having issues with international browsing, sites are very slow to load or don't load at all)i.e timeout), I expected to find a thread here about this issue as this has to be affecting a lot of people surely?

Came here to see if anyone else was posting about it.

Yes, I have noticed the same problem. I'm in Christchurch on Spark VDSL.

I just had a Spark customer call about this issue. It only seems to affect websites that are hosted offshore, so perhaps there's an issue at an upstream provider.

You should add information like date / time issue started

I noticed an issue here as well - Arstechnica cannot load. I originally thought it might have been an issue with the wifi connection but I've gone for old fashioned cable to the router and the same issue appears as well.

 

Edit: Strange, the issue doesn't appear to impact Spark's mobile network - arstechnica loads fine on my mobile using my mobile connection.

We're onto it. I can see the issue. No ETR yet. Thought I'd drop a quick note here at least to let people know it's under action.

An update to the Spark Outages pages would be helpful :)

I'm sure an update is underway but if it's like most places, the wheels turn slowly.  :)

 

I mainly jumped on here to see if anyone else was having an issue and it was a bonus to see it's a known issue and being worked on.  Thanks!
