Has anyone SUCCESSFULLY got any compensation from Telecom for the Xtra outage yet? I see that they are apologetic but it doesn't cut it!! If Sky TV can offer compensation, why can't Telecom!

If you've been successful, how much of your bill was wiped?

Read the yesterday's Herald.

They dont have such policy to refund you in case of any outage.
You didnt get a service you paid for?? They are sorry, but no money back!

Compensation like Sky's ($2 odd) that was based on the daily subscription is hardly worth worrying about compared with being prompt and upfront with Network status messages and believeable reasons for outages.

In Australia Telstra pay conpensation for loss of service, it's a shame that none of the Telcos in NZ have such a policy!

"Its just a outage and these things happen from time to time. Go read a book or something when these things happen"

Thats probably the best thing to do, but one has to wonder what their reaction is if you have a 'payment outage'... would they just go and read a book?

I wonder what happens when Telecom try and charge you an overdue charge for not paying your account on time and you exclaim "but I couldn't access my internet banking for 3 days because my Xtra internet didn't work" :-)
