As it stands at the moment. Some chch TCL cable customers may have connection problem - as with me too.

Check TCL Network status for update.

Area Affected: Christchurch
Customer Impact: Our overhead cables (transport/catv networks) were damaged due to Car vs Pole incident at the corner of Barrington St. and Wychbury St in Christchurch as reported by Trans South. This has caused service interruption to our IP/CATV customers in the area. The fibre restoration work is pended until the replacement of a new pole is completed by Orion (Power Company).

What area are you in? My area/home is Upper Riccarton/Sockburn. The downpoint is at Barrington area. I wonder how big/wide the accident affected. Strangely enough, why is there no backloop to feed alternative route?

nope. still down with the connection. Network Status stated that it may be back on 12midnight... i doubt so though, sounded pretty serious damage.

Posting this from my Vodafone UMTS card... (it switches in and out of GPRS and UMTS. lol)
