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.

Rural Broadband RBI installer for Ultimate Broadband and Full Flavour

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
