Surprised there isn't any mention of the outages. Appear to have multiple ISPs having problems with Adsl/Vdsl at the moment. Voda, 2Talk, Voyager and others.

UFB seems fine. Anyone else?

I'm having problems on Bigpipe ADSL in CHCH.

Had an email from them:-


"Some NZ internet service providers, including Bigpipe, have been experiencing network issues today. We are aware of issues between 12:27 - 12-37 PM and 2:24 - 2:34 PM. If you have been affected, you may have noticed a connection drop-out or similar problem. We're chasing it up urgently to have it fixed ASAP. 


If your internet has gone down and hasn't reconnected within 10 minutes, try rebooting your modem and reconnecting again. 


If you've been affected, we sincerely apologise for any inconvenience.

I've seen this thread in the Spark section, but yes - there are/were issues.

Massive melt down today. First drop we saw was at 13:26 then just a bunch afterwards and then back to normal around 3ish.

Apparently it was an issue at Mayoral Drive according to our wholesaler. South Island was fine but had connections drop all over North Island.
