Well, it looks the Vodafone 3G network went down again, this time the IP with it. Sbiddle's rant on his blog post "Open letter to Russell Stanners - Why Vodafone NZ sucks" and paradoxm's entry "Vodafone's abhorrent network just craps out under the minor strain AGAIN!".

Well, after seeing how badly the 3G network performed just before Christmas Eve, it would be to expect something would be done to prevent a repeat. But apparently it went badly as well in the New Year's Eve.

Let's see what the Vodafone NZ crowd around here can say to help understand what's going on.

No good at all Vodafone. I will pay out my contract and move to Telecom if this keeps up. I would have thought the 3G network to be more able to handle the heavy traffic. Probably some good deals for 3G phones on trade me, used for one week only. Or wait for a Telecom trade in deal!

People at the party that I was at last night were successfully sending and receiving messages, but they were all using 2G handsets as far as I could tell.

I would try a soft reset or SIM in another handset as there are no issues (that I am aware of)

Problems too; would seem my phone is not receiving confirmation that it has successfully sent a text. The text is being delivered straight away, but remains in my outbox (thinking it is unsent). It ends up sending the text out three times.





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
