Anyone else having issues right now? I have a customer in Hamilton with no connection right now. Also there is an announcement when you call the call centre, but no other info.

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 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.

No connection here in Hikurangi (Whangarei).

Thought maybe Xnet were being dicks because I signed up with Telecom yesterday.

It is covered in the XNet network status, it is a Telecom issue.

As per the status page, Telecom has an issue under investigation, it is effecting multiple ISP's

Yes I am a employee of WxC (My Profile) ... but I do have my own opinions as well Wink
