Anyone else lost their connection?




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.

Telcom appear to have an issue at present which is effecting our DSL handover links, Everything from our side is online but all DSL and FTTH connections are not being handed over even though tunnels are still up.

Being worked on at present... we do not have any info from Telecom on the issue at this time.

VFX customers using Xnet dsl will be effected as the issue appears to be only effecting our handover links.


Note- This is not effecting normal Toll services.

Can confirm Xnet internally looks to be ok- my DSL is down at the home office, but North Shore schools that connect to Xnet via Vector (bypassing Telecom) all appear to be up without problems.

edit: I can call one of these school's PABX units which is on Xnet DVX and it answers as normal. I'd say the helpdesk line is overloaded at the moment!

Update: Still no ETR, issue is with Telecom and no root cause explaination at this stage.

Effected delivered services are

Xnet DSL
Xnet FTTH


***Note*** WxC systems and network is all online and issue relates to service delivery of these 2 services only.

The DVX over fibre number mentioned earlier is performing normally, but dialling my own VFX number from my Telecom landline gets the "no such destination" four-pip beep pattern. Calling from Vodafone gets the message "The number you have called is not currently active, or is invalid".

I find this werid given that I can call my client's 099502XXX DVX number from the same Telecom landline or Vodafone mobile without issue... shouldn't incoming calls to my 099503XXX VFX be going to voicemail or call-forward-unavailable, or an overload message, or anything other than "invalid number"?

Ah, it seems to be back up :)

... just curious though, how did it manage to kill off VFX (the invalid number messages above) and apparently also your helpdesk, while DVX happily stayed up without issue?

I haven't noticed any issues with either VFX or DVX lines here at home. Both incoming and outgoing have been working fine.

Yes they should, this was working for my VFX number when my DSL went offline, send me your details A and BParty and what time the number was called and I will take a look.

Issue started resolving at approx 18:25, Issue relates to the handover links for these 2 services (UBA / DSL and FTTH)... We are still investigating along with Telecom the root cause.

We apologise for this outage and the inconvenience caused by it.
