I was called to a client who has been out of her office for the school office. She is a customer of PlaNet Internet who are resellers of KC Internet.

She is unable to get online via PlaNet. I called all of the numbers I have for PlaNet and KC Internet but I get a disconnected tone on everything - land and mobile numbers.

Does anyone have an idea what has happened? I guess I need to move my client over to another provider.

Never heard of either. What are their URLs, and are their websites online?

Pl.Net / PLaNet is a very old and respected ISP in NZ.http://www.pl.net/

I know nothing about KCI http://www.kci.net.nz/ Not promising when their phones have a disconnection tone.

PLaNets phone number on their website 0800 752638. Is that the number you get no dial tone on?

That is only one of the numbers that I am getting a disconnected tone on. I have also got a mobile and landline number.

That is odd. The kc website says there are no problems. Have you tried emailing their support and got a ticket number from them?

This is normal if the ISP uses voip lines for its call centre.
Pl.net are an older niche ISP, and kc.net is also a small niche one based in auckland that caters to other small isp's around the country. Both have been around since BBS days in NZ.

I heard from PlaNet support today that they had been the recipient of a change by Telecom. Hopefully things are sorted now.
