Their Twitter feed acknowledges an issue that is HIGH priority.

Hmm where's it say that? The latest tweet I can see is "Gigabit speeds at affordable prices are coming to Wellington & Chch next year on our ultra-fast broadband network" marketing slosh.

I'll pipe up and say geekzone and stuff rarely work for me on HFC, but its now spread to almsot every site. On mobile data to be able to post this.

Months of this and all Vodafone ever wants is more traces. I just want the connection I pay for damnit.

Yes this is a rant.

Back to normal for me now. Was unable to access a whole lot of sites since 5pm, mostly domestic sites but some international sites didn't work for me as well, such as reddit. Probably because those international sites have a NZ CDN.

Yeah, back here also but noting extended page load times, longer than usual DNS lookup times, higher than usual pings and other typical signs that a bottleneck has just been broken ...

jimbob79: I've got nothing since 11:45pm all access it down. Rebooted everything.

Lower Hutt.

I got this in Kapiti as well at the sameish time. Didn't have any problems up until 11.45ish and then suddenly the internet disappeared even though the modem was still connected just fine. Was back up in the morning but not sure what time it reappeared...

Update from the team -
CONFIRMED ISSUE - Internet services in Wellington and South Island
Some Vodafone customers in Wellington and the South Island may have experienced difficulty accessing the Internet and making voice calls late yesterday (Tuesday) and again this morning.

The cause of the problem has been identified and the majority of customers had service restored late last night. The problems were triggered by issues on a link on a network device in Wellington.

A group of our Enterprise customers continue to be affected by connection failures this morning. We are working now to connect these customers manually and will continue to work on a complete resolution.

We apologise to customers who have experienced a reduced service.

Many thanks,
Vodafone Operations
