Sorry I wasn't looking for IP checking sites.  I am after examples of which sites and services you are having issues with when using the WAP APN.  I have GZ thanks Mauricio :)

It looks like it affects web services that create multiple sessions that require the same source IP address for each session.  I haven’t replicated for the following online banking sites, Westpac, BNZ, Kiwibank.

It seems those banking sites are not checking IP address changes then... Not so secure?

FYI we do not create multiple sessions from the same browser/IP address. It's just one. If the appropriate option is checked in your profile then we will logout any session which IP address doesn't match the one used to create the session.

This is one way of preventing session hijacking, which is easy to do these days with tools like firesheep.

Currently, as advised previously you can use the internet.telecom.co.nz APN to resolve this.
