Vector Communications in Auckland servicing the CBD are experiencing a major network outage, this will be effecting a majority of services running over vector circuits,

I can't comment for other SP's but this will be effecting some customers for quite a few SP's,

Issue occured at 13:37 (12:37pm) today - no ETR at this time but it is looking to be ongoing for several hours yet.

working on the helpdesk is hell right now cause of this outage. I have spent the whole day saying the same thing "we have a network outage at the moment, caused by a third party, we hope to have it resolved in the next couple of hours"

Vodafone/ihug has been dead all afternoon. Try switching to Mobile broadband as a backup. I've been on 3G since 2pm & that is working fine. In fact, its the only way I can get to the status page of the Vodafone network, as the helpdesk is 100% gone with the volume of calls. Wish I had not left my Linksys 3G router at work this weekend!!!

AmooMan: (Backup systems anyone) ??

Backup systems (if any) will collapse with such a big outage, and because the fibre network is pretty big, it won't make much of a difference.

Have Vector said anything about the cause of the outage? Is it because of the new tracking device Tongue out in the press release on Saturday??




We'll never be too old to learn, and we learn at least one new thing every day.
