Internet just dropped for the last 10mins

I am in Auckland, Penrose area.

Anyone having issues with fibre right now?

Dad's with Vodafone and just texted me with 'can't connect', so presumably the same issue. He's in Whakatane.

Two of my staff are with Vodafone and we're meant to be on conference call right. Both unable to connect, one in Onehunga and one in Howick

Just talked through my friend in Levin and got him to use Google DNS and he now has internet.

 

So it would appear Voda's DNS lost the plot again

Yes, it looks like DNS again.  I've just changed the DNS in our router to point to Google and restarted all devices to work around it.
