Hi - I've been using Xnet VFX since June this year - and am more than happy with the quality etc of the service.

I'm on TelstraClear Naked Cable - and ported my old phone number with them across to VFX.

Issue is - I've just found out today (via a friend trying to find our phone number) that we our now missing from the new printed whitepages and also the online whitepages!

What's the story with this? I thought that anyone that had a phone service (albeit VoIP or POTS) was automatically elligible to have a directories listing!

Is this true - perhaps it is a paper-work issue on Xnets side of things!

HELP!! Can somebody please tell me what the situation is?

How do I get listed in directories?

Err; ring your service provider, or the Yellow Pages Group. DO NOT ring Telecom NZ.

I had the same problem when I've switched to Fusion, not listed any more even though I've filled in that I want to be and what the listing must say.  After more than 6 months, have not yet bothered sorting it out.  When WxC reads this, please check your processes that you do keep people listed when requested on the application form.

You can never have enough Volvos!

Can we please have a tick box on the Dealer forms for this??

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?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.
Rural Broadband RBI installer for Ultimate Broadband and Full Flavour
