They said it was restored at 1pm today ... and it wasn't.

Just boils down to the fact that Telecom is just an untrustworthy company with a 3G network that was poorly planned without redundancy.

RNC's aren't like a dual hotswap PSU's in a PC. They can't easily be made redundant.

If an RNC fails it will take out service to all Node B's that run off that RNC. The reality is they are a piece of core network that simply isn't supposed to fail but both Telecom and Vodafone have had RNC failures along with many other telcos around the world.

The key question is why the RNC is failing...

It was a Vodafone sabotage device






Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 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.

I think last time the fact that there is only 1 RNC for that Geographic area was discussed. If Vodafone can have 6 then surely a new network wanting 2 million people on it within 3 years would aim to do the same thing??? Whats the reasoning??? cost cutting?

Under a localized or provincial RNC set up, If only CHCH or Dunedin went out, it would be a pain but not the entire southisland and most of north island. Surely this would make sense.

Very troubling!

Very hard indeed. It's serious when a fault takes down their network. More troubling when it happens more than once.

WHERE WAS THE TELECOM CEO OR HEAD OF MOBILE ON 3NEWS

DISGUSTING..... the lack of accountability is appalling!

I think a movement is in order!

It must of been where we were in hamilton, I'm up at the hospital and none of the XT phones onsite worked.
The old cdma network was fine though.
