Morning all

Woke up this morning and went to check a few things online only to find my net was down.  With all the router problems i've had of late my heart sank, but then quickly rose again to find the cable modem had no connection.  I live in Karori, my partner called TelstraClear who told her that there is a power outage in the CBD that is affecting their cable service. 

There's nothing on the Clear website - says all is well.  Anyone else heard of this problem today?  Hopefully it's fixed up by the time I get home tonight.

Anyone know if this has been sorted?  The gf just got home and says no interweb yet.  Told her to reset the cable modem and router but thought I'd check and see if anyone had heard any updates?

edit:  Same message on the Telstra phone at the moment saying no ETA.  Sigh.  Might have to whip out the vodem when i get home!

edit2: just called telstra (3:30) who said its all fixed up now.  fyi.
