I've had alot of calls lately about Xtra and Paradise DSL/Cable customers complaining about a service outage. Paradise always seems to have these maintenance schedules lately in the middle of the day and Xtra... well... I don't know what's going on.

Anyone experiencing this as well? I have cable and dsl at home and seem to be having problems with both from time to time.

This is in the Wellington area.

There were 2 short overnight TCL cable outages over recent Tuesday nights affecting some parts of the network due to network upgrades. Apart from the major Paradise outage a few weeks ago and an issue around the same time with a small number of modems losing connectivity temporarily with the network (mine included) I haven't had any problems.
