c71931f: "XT Update: There are significant issues with XT south of Taupo, particularly impacting Voice services. SMS/Data impacted to lesser extent 2 minutes ago " from @telecomnz on twitter


You're late. This was posted here already - read up the page...



I don't see a Twitter quote anywhere in this thread actually.  


I raised an eyebrow when I read "Freitasm",  as there was no Twitter quote, I thought his response was rude !

Why? I am just pointing out there is a confirmation link already directly to the Telecom site, posted here at the same time as the Twitter post.

Hi all,

Now the XT Network has officially crashed three or more times, you would wonder if the Government might step in a force Vodafone to open up their network to enable XT users to temporary 'Roam' ?? How else can they 'fix' the issue with the network being used and relied on to work 100% - it's not like they can go back to CDMA without issuing new handsets... the logistics are mind boggling?

I am sure (correct me if I am wrong) Telco's are considered essential public services like the power companies. Disruption can mean emergency services can't communicate etc..

Any thoughts??

It was a small number when sbiddle got the information... It has snowballed since then it appears.

I am pretty sure that telecommunications aren't classed as essential services.

Force Vodafone to open their network? I wasn't aware Telecom were asking them to.
I'm sure if Telecom gave them an offer Vodafone would consider it
