I would say XT. That crashed repeatedly in the first few months. This is only the first main/big issue for Spark Sport, isn't it?

Or Unleashed / go large plan?

 

 





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

Spark Sport has been crashing and having issues since they first launched.

How you could send 10k texts in a weekend and that would be back when phones had the number keys would it not ??. I doubt I have sent that many in my life.

How about The Xtra-Ordinaries? (note: I was working at Telecom at the time they came along).

Telecom XT network launch for sure takes the cake!

 

Edit: SparkNZ is not the same business TelecomNZ was

I think the stats of 132000 peak versus 126000 at the end of the game that had issues shows it wasn't a very widespread issue. Social media is not a good place to get an idea from the issue as it's generally just all the p1ssed off people looking to vent.

 

XT on the other hand would have full day outages - that was a complete shambles.

Go Large would take my vote, but I can see XT being up there and more impactful to some.

Remember when they contracted Alcatel Lucent to build a GSM 850MHZ network and 2100MHZ for UMTS. Six months into the build they (Telecom) changed their minds and changed the specs to a fully dedicated 3G UMTS network using 850MHZ and 2100MHZ. what a cock up.

 

And also building a nationwide CDMA network when they should have used GSM tech.
