It isn't small to me but i thought i'd post anyway

 

 

 

People using disabled carparks , and having the approved window tag .

 

But they get and only them get out of their car and walk a significant distance (i pushed myself in my wheelchair) to the public toilets .

 

Then skip into the New World store come out with their trolly of groceries and pick them up a few bags in each hand and walk on out the mall to their car like a able bodied person ( i know some people have hidden and unseen ailments but this female was taking the piss)

Or she was the wife/carer and shouldn’t have used it but the tag was validly given?

Dingbatt: When you get back from holiday having survived on roaming data for 2 weeks to discover your broadband is dead. Landline dead as well. Grrrrr copper. Still only 18-24 months to wait for fibre in this area.
Waiting for the man from Spark to arrive.


Consider yourself lucky.

Fibre here due in 2026!

Tiger beer 12-pack cartons that won't simply fold flat to go in the recycling bin due to their weird trapezoidal asymmetric shape.

I reckon by the time we get it, some amazing thing will have replaced it long since, and it will be the equivalent of two baked bean tins and a bit of string...!

Please don't hesitate to call if you have any questions. Why not simply please call if you have any questions?

Because he who hesitates is lost, and telling people to get lost is bad for business.

The difference is possibly that I'm only 10 km from the Skytower.

On the positive side, Spark's response was excellent. After reporting the fault online (mobile data) at 8pm on a Saturday night, 20GB was loaded on my phone to see me through, the technician arrived at the green box across the road at 9am on Sunday morning and normal service was resumed about 15 minutes later. When he called to confirm things were working I asked what had caused the fault, he said a broken wire.
I'm first in the queue to complain when Spark's response isn't up to scratch, so it is only right to give credit when they do a good job.

Good to hear. If it wasn't for their eye-watering roaming costs I might even use them..!

The fibre being installed is forward compatible with future standards. When Chorus starts rolling out 10Gbit PON. they will only need to install a new ONT for you to get it.

Compared to the Aussie NBN, where you will get VDSL if you are lucky. And that will still be an upgrade.

A parcel of cables still not here....project on hold.

 

23 Nov - Shipped in China

 

26 Nov - Handed over to Airline in China

 

29 Nov - Arrived in Auckland

It's taking far longer to get from Auckland to Christchurch than from the supplier in China to New Zealand!
