I really like Ihug, but man they seem to be having some huge technical issues as of late, first with e-mail not working on and off for two weeks, assigning private IP's when connecting and then today! a all day outtage.
From their website - looks like it's a Telecom issue, but I have had problems authenticating for a few weeks now, so whatever that finally died had been going south for a while....
They thought they had it fixed around 11am but then it died again. Still can't connect and it's 3pm.
Is anyone else having problems? non-ihug customers? (the detail says it's a Telecom ADSL fault, but Xtra and Orcon's status messages say all OK.)
Broadband connection failures
When did the problem start?
8am, 22 Nov 06
What's the problem?
Some broadband customers will be unable to connect to the internet.
Telecom have advised that a problem at the Mayoral Drive exchange is causing the issue. This exchange is a core part of the ADSL broadband network and as a result the issue is affecting services nationwide.
What are we doing to resolve this?
Unfortunately this fault has reoccurred. We're working with Telecom to resolve the issue as quickly as possible. We're very sorry for the disruption to your connection.
Telecom are currently still investigating the problem so we can’t tell you exactly when it will be resolved. We’ll let you know as soon as we know more.
