Using it tonight is like experiencing a 14.4 modem all over again. SLOW.... it took 27 seconds to load the homepage ARGH!
A search for EVDO, ericsson,  reveals NO results however there is content on the site related to these items.
It's worse than ever to navigate.
THERE IS NO CONTENT ON THE SITE asides how to sell you stuff!

Downloading a PDF file.... I think it maxed out at 3.1 Kb (kiloBIT) per second.....

This will be shooing customers away for sure.... It's a horrible experience, especially when every myriad of phone messages say "you need to visit our website for blah blah blah blah rather than having ANY info on the product/service.

The most annoying thing is the javascript:nopopup() they have used on most of the links so you cant open links in a new tab grrrr.

I just visited the site and it loaded in under 5seconds..

5 seconds! unless ihug have blocked it hmmmm, conspiracy theory.

From of recent it looks like that have abandoned those stupid "javascript:nopopup" links and "ads.xtra.co.nz" links at long last!

I wanted to help someone else on the forums here with a query about datacard coverage,,, 10 minute wait for the PDF! nasty... at least the coffee was good ;-)

the easiest way to search for things on telecom.co.nz (and in fact any website anywhere on the web) is by using Google but limiting it to seaching that one domain. For example, to search for pages within www.telecom.co.nz that contain the phrase 'EVDO' you would google the following:

EVDO site:www.telecom.co.nz

This will throw a list back at you of every page at the Telecom domain that has that phrase, and it will do it within the normal ultra-quick Google timeframe.

Enjoy!

Thats all very good but sometimes you just want to be able to type something into the search box which is on the web site without doing the extra steps for a google search of the site.

Maybe Telecom should ditch their search and use the google one on their site. That would make life easier for everyone

Javascript on links = personal pet hate. Can't this be does with http links to the Javascript? I have bugger all experience with html or javascript but seems like common sense to me.

Yes, you can leave the href pointing to a page, and have the onclick do some other action so the pages are still available to people wanting to open in new tabs etc. But I have been to a site once that would open pages in both the new tab and the current one when middle clicking links.
