I'm in Christchurch and have just been Facebooking some of my XT friends and all of them have the same issues, can not send txts (get an unable to send message warning) or access tworld. I just called customer service and got an automated reply saying the network was overloaded and could not continue :(.

Can anyone shed some further light on the issue regarding why the network is suddenly overloading?.

Regards in advance,

Yeah just got through to them, its not just the south island like the usual faults, the ladys last call was from palmerston north so yeah whole xt it 'seems' (the helpdesk staff, again, like usual, pretty much dont get told anything), SMS and mobile broadband are only affected as far as they know.

If you have to run heating in winter, you don’t own enough computers.
