As for being fixed:

Norpsely: After a lenghty chat with a T2 support person at xtra they told me what the problem is .



The info given to Norpsley is simply wrong. It reflected an earlier theory that has since been proven wrong. The person giving out that info should never have done so as it was only an unproven theory and was subsequently shown to be incorrect.

The right people are working hard on this but it's NOT a simple fault - it's a subtle issue and not just a bit of broken kit which could be replaced.

Pinging google.com [66.102.7.99] with 32 bytes of data:

Request timed out.

So there will be a network status on the web site? Surely this constitutes a fault on the broadband network. Just saying.

"There are no known issues with our services at this time"


I'm trying to be helpful here in the forums in the absence of timely updates to the status pages. If it turns into a beatup, I'll stop posting publicly and just PM people individually if they have specific concerns... I'd prefer to keep posting so that all readers can benefit though.

Your call.

Cheers - Neil G

My point is purely that if there WERE current and detailed updates on that page then you may not HAVE to be answering as many questions about the problems people are having. In addition, if CSR's use that page as their first point of call for possible issues, then no wonder they don't know there is anything wrong. I certainly did not mean my link to a Telecom page to constitute a 'beatup', that's for sure...

Keep your head down, don't tell anyone anything and hope most customers don't notice is the standard operating procedure for every ISP in NZ.

They are all fairly well stuck in the dark ages communications wise.

I think Talkiet's point is that the he dosn't control the status page, so because of the fact that the status page isn't being maintained at this stage for this specific problem he is going out of his way to post information about the problem here, he is doing us a favour right now, just because he works at telecom does not make him responsible to every single issue here, you can go scream at other people but he is trying to help in the way that he can.

Yes "marketing" are undoubtedly are not interested in letting techs or engineers update website status page.

So here we are reading GZ and GPForums and following some ISP/teco employees on Twitter.

It's a hard life!

Thanks in advance for all the support telecom employees here.

below is the reply i got from CTS, and so did they really roll out a patch?

Can you please verify its working on your end? I apologise for the inconvenience.

Must have rolled straight back out then - things have gone downhill since then.

I've made a few service calls to them since then and been told (at times) that problems are still occuring. I think Telecom needs to work on informing their front line staff on issues.

Things have been good for me today though.

I find it has improved slightly - and I emphasize slightly. I can get into Gmail ok. I can even log into online games, but it lags like heck after a short while.
