Hello world,

A friend of mine in NZ has an XNet ADSL line with static IP.

Do xnet disconnect ADSL-connections daily, as it's common here in Europe (in order to prevent people to run servers)?

If so do they disconnect after 24 hours or at a certain time of the day?

thanks

No, there's nothing like that.  Generally your connection is going to be as stable as your line is, if there's no reason for us to disconnect your account.  Usually the only things that cause us to kick a customer offline is when they request a change to their account (you get kicked for the change to come into effect when you reconnect) and on the first day of the month if you've hit your cap and been rate limited to put you back up to full rate.

I've seen customers connections that have been up for a month or more but that's not too common.

Great. Thanks. Then I can deactivate the provider-disconnect-prevention in my friend's FritzBox, so he is even rechable through VoIP in those 5 seconds, the reconnect took before. ;-)
