My connection went down twice tonight.
Dropped by itself the first time and came back up about 20min later.
Then my power tripped (stupid heater) and couldn't connect again for about an hour :(

All seems to be fine again now though.

Apparently much of OZ was down also due to problems on the US side of the ANZ cable?!?!

Jeffthechef: Apparently much of OZ was down also due to problems on the US side of the ANZ cable?!?!

This happened about 3 weeks ago. Had only a minor impact on NZ traffic and a slighly larger impact on Oz traffic.

If there was an outage again last night  you're the only one who knows about it :-)

I lost my connection for over 5 hours yesterday and 2 hours today!
Now I'm finally back online - yippee-NOT!!! My speeds: 333k d/s, 101k u/s - it's supposed to be a f-ing 3.5M connection!!!
WTF is going on with the NZ network?

Read the news, they are experiencing some problems.

And dont worry: they dont have such a policy to refund you in case they have outages however you are not getting the service you paid for. This was in the NZ Herald today. How nice.

I is a kollege stoodent. Bee nice.
