Jase2985:

 

you know there are no contract ISP's out there right? get the connection sorted with one of them and move after the first month. there is no early termination fee then.

 

and yes that is what quickymart is implying, engage a second ISP to get UFB connected then when it is move to Vodafone.

 

 

 

 

There would be no cost to me but there will be a cost to the ISP and that is something I wont do.

 

 

please explain what cost you think the ISP will occur?

I don't wish to dwell on this as its deflecting from the main issue of this thread. However if one starts a new business relationship there are costs involved such as accounting and billing setup, credit checks, man hours to implement the new connection etc etc 

 

I would like to ask that we please park this for now.

I understand that its Chorus/Govt that pays for all new UFB connections under the UFB rollout plan. I expect the installation costs are hidden within the monthly rates.

Downers replaced the TC4400 and the Huawei HG659 this morning, all is good so far.

The TC 4400 has been replaced with the same of course. The HG659 also but that is just temporary I intend replacing that myself soon. I want to keep the keep the system all VF while it's sorted out.

So they think it was a faulty modem/router that was causing your issues? What about the micro outages?

They believe the Technicolor TC4400 was causing the drop outs but decided to replace both units in one trip to be sure it makes sense to cover bases.

I will report back here with updates.

I'm a bit confused then. 

 

A number of people on here have reported micro outages, including me from time to time. A while back @MikeHales said the following:

 

Apologies for the micro outages, the engineers have been looking into it and it's not a physical fault but rather connected to DHCP. Still working on it.

 

So is this a DHCP issue or a physical fault? It seems that in replacing your equipment they would be thinking the later?

As luck would have it my connection hasn't been too bad of late.  I used to get micro outages of up to a minute or so but I haven't noticed any in the last week.

 

I do still have to restart the cable modem and router from time to time (@ every couple of weeks).  The cable modem seems to hang.  I still have a DHCP connection but no internet access.

It may or may not fix the issues I was having time will tell I guess. I am willing to work with them to resolve this issue (as long as it does not go on too long) and it really does not cost me anything except time. I was still getting the outages up until the equipment was replaced yesterday. I haven't spent much time online to notice if it is gone.

I am on 200/20 FibreX and am on a much discounted rate due to the "admitted" issues with the network that they are struggling to come to grips with. They have also noted on my files that they will let me cancel my contract without penalty if I want to. 

 

But, atm the price is attractive enough to put up with the odd micro outage. Because VF are having these issues and because we know they will probably always have these issues, I would always stay with VF router/modem!!
