My cable has been down since 9:30am (1.5 hours so far). According to message when phoning call centre and twitter this outage affects Wellington and Christchurch.


Nothing on Network Status page and no indication of when it will be back up.

Pretty serious rain in Wellington here last night. Just the downfalls of having your network exposed to the elements up on poles, as well as all that active gear sitting out there too.

My cable in Woolston Christchurch is going fine. Not on the "fibre" plan yet, are you?

On Fibre-X, cable is underground in our area which is Beckenham. Unlikely to be weather related given outages occurring in different cities.


Back up now.
