It seems Johnsonville/Churton Park don't have cable modem service at the moment. Got reports from another two Geekzone users on this. Has been down for 90 minutes now.

Calling TelstraClear, since their status page shows all green...

Obviously their customer services says there isn't a problem.

What a joke, TelstraClear.

Maybe the people who update the status page are also in Jville/Churton Park...

Add: Twitter's also experiencing difficuilties at the moment, maybe TC could take a leaf out of their whales?

freitasm: What a joke, TelstraClear.

Fully agree with this sentiment.

The connection came back about 12:30pm, so in all about 3:30 hours outage. Service was restored earlier but I am told by TelstraClear thousands of modems were retraining the connection and taking time for all of them to get back online.

On the other hand, the TelstraClear NOC presence in their Twitter account has improved things a lot - they were responsive and acknowledged the problem. The only "weak link" was the lack of knowledge of this problem in the call centre.

It seems we are all back and in good speed again.
