I can browse all over the web - until I try to go to http://www.wellington-airport.co.nz/ for the last couple of hours I can't get on. I am guessing a "transparent" proxy issue - anyone else on Telecom in Wellington - can you check if you can get on - psecifically I'm trying to get to the parking page - could get elsewhere on the site originally now its all gone

Unfrigging believable - I can connect via the phone - how on earth can a major ISP lose connectivity to the local airport's site ??? I'd call it third world - but Thailand had much faster (and cheaper) interent

Routing issues are common everywhere, and sometimes can be out of the ISPs control. Calling third world is just plain silly.

REALLY exDee - the only place I've had this issue before is in NZ - nowhere else have I lost access to specific sites - not for over 2 years in Perth, or many trips to Asia. and the thing is that over 8 hours later its STILL a problem!

The issue could be well beyond Telecom's network however, which isn't their fault.

What happens when you do a traceroute to the website? This should show where the routing issues lies.

As said above; routing issues happen. Telecom may have a simple cache issue, maybe the dns has been updated... Don't be so silly.

tracert fails somewhere in the US - but my point stands - if it was the host's fault 2degreemobile wouldn't have connected me to the site

apparently the biggest problem 3rd world countries have is not being able to connect to a particular website for a few hours.

Did you log a fault?

Telecom cannot fix that which they do not know of. I am quite certain they do not have a team of people testing every hyper link.

As someone has mentioned here best point of contact is to log a call with 123 to investigate further. Does someone have a fault number that I can glance at (don't want to disturb the guys working on it)?
