Looks like Spark is experiencing major 4G/LTE outages.

I tried to send pxt yesterday and failed. Now I know why. It did not drop back to 3G for that service. Looks like that is part of the fault too.

NZHerald says 20% of VoLTE calls are failing. Not much detail in there.

I wonder whether this is why I've had to toggle flight mode on and off to get data working. I'm on Skinny, but it's the same underlying network.

Later I will try manually switching 3G to get my pxts out if possible.

I was wondering about this. I suspect this is particularly relevant to iPhones - I was with some colleagues (we are all on Spark) yesterday and today and they would have issues and I would not - all VoLTE calls.  They are all on iPhones and I was using a S21.  Seems they can more reliably receive calls, but not make them.
