Conspiracy Theory time...
So I've been looking at Skinny wireless broadband as a backup internet connection for a few months now. It has always been available in my area/street/address - area is Upper Hutt.
I went to sign up coincidentally just before the Rugby World Cup (not what Im using it for BTW) and now my address shows up as unavailable. Not just mine but many addresses around my area, other suburbs etc.
My area is well serviced by cable, fibre, vdsl and there are 3 Spark towers within a few kms of my house so I don't think there was a sudden surge in people signing up for Skinny Broadband (remember my area has fibre, cable and VDSL).
So is this just bad luck or has Spark/Skinny possibly stopped new signups during the RWC to ensure there is enough bandwidth?
Or am I just crazy?
