spronkey:martinschcnz: Regardless of the what happened, or why, it is simply unacceptable for a national carrier such as Telecom to have a network that is this unreliable.
In our case not only are mobile communications mission critical they are LIFE critical. There should be no way a failure on ANY piece of equipment can have downstream effects such as this.
Simply not good enough Telecom.
While I agree, and don't take this as offense, but surely if your comms are life critical you would have rather serious redundancy?
Have to agree here,
This is no different to web based businesses who used ADSL in the early days and when they had slow speeds and outages went nuts at Telecom. In this case ADSL is a best effort service so no guarantees and those particular businesses should have been using dedicated internet services... they were just not prepared to spend the money required.
Telecom do have to work hard here but mobile is a best effort network also, if it is mission critical then surely a radio network or land based system is preferred?
