Is the Vodafone cable out in Johnsonville this afternoon?

I'm at work, but the wife is at home saying no net. I've got her to power cycle the router and modem, and rebooted her laptop but still no net.

Anyone else in the Johnsonville area having net issues on VF cable?

Been down for me in Khandallah since 12pm. Still down. Came back for 10 minutes about an hour ago.

Kandallah has been down off an on for the past few days. It is down at the moment, for example.
Quite frankly this is not acceptible.

It would be nice if someone from VF commented on what is going on...

Add me to it for Khandallah. Internet has been up and down like a yoyo and whenever I call they say they know there is a problem and techs are working on it. As I was leaving home today I saw a Downer truck and asked what they were doing. Turns out that were replacing wiring for another house near me and had no idea about my house. I don't have a wiring issue because my cable TV is fine. This message means iy must be further up the line. I just hope they fix it soon because it's frustrating having it go up and down all the time.

I assume there is an alarm somewhere when things go down, but I wonder if the alarm actually generates any actionable insight.

Meaning - start working on things BEFORE people complain.

That's why I asked @JohnR if there's anything in the system.

That's a good idea. But when I worked at TCL Faults there was nothing like that. The only we found out about any issues on the cable network was when dozens of customers started calling to report faults.

No, but I promise it is true. Things really aren't working as they should.

freitasm: Yes, it's a very dumb way of doing it.


Not from a complaints standpoint. Users not notifying of outages basically means you dont have to do anything till they call you, if you proactively monitor then you have records that can be used against you.

No, I value my time too much to call VF's shocking phone support. The fault has been logged by multiple users in this thread.

Here is another:
  down Sunday 1 November 2015 at 23:34 (now) in Khandallah

Thanks

You may live in ' Khandallah ' but the Node you could be connected to may well be in another location, If you are not willing to call log and log an official fault ticket that is your call

But when did you last call into Vodafone? Loads more staff now work out of a new building in Chch taking HFC calls
