Link below suggests it to be the case, I still wouldn't click on any links though.

Don't confuse this with vodafone.co.nz and ihug.co.nz etc. accounts needing reconfirmation a month or two back.

Perhaps they should do the same with clearnet email!




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Odd. Its good of them to say that its am old platform and are ending it (or updating to SSL) but why leave .co.nz and Clear and Ihug?

Perhaps they are conducting this as a pilot to see how they will shut down some of the others. Worth noting they are not completely shutting down but will offer forwarding for this one at least.

 

 

I'd imagine vodafone.net.nz would have had one of the lowest response rates from when they asked people whether they wanted to keep their email two months back.

Actually. Ihug and Clear, especially Clear are a lot more common than Vodafone.*.nz  The same issue apply to the others, I guess this is the trial, as you say
