This is the most incompetence company I have ever had the miss fortune to deal with

3 weeks without a reliable phone and when I asked for my account information as I’m leaving for another provider they gave me the wrong information 3 times.

Now I have to go to telecom and have a new connection set up and start again from scratch.

It looks like I will have to sue them as all my sign writing and listings will have the wrong number on them

Let’s hope telecom can give me my old number but there is no guarantee

How does number porting actually work?

I understand a reasonable amount about how the dns system works and how ip addressing works.  But how do phone numbers actually work?

Lol I don't think you'll get far trying to sue them. Just setup with another provider for a number port, send them a copy of your past NZNet bills and they should be able to sort the rest of the process out for you.

It appears that when I moved to nznet they took position of my phone number therefore unless they release it I have to stay with them or take the risk of losing the number all together

I tried to move to slingshot but as nznet will not or cannot supply the account number sling shot cannot connect me. Sling shot suggested that the only way out of this is to reconnect with telecom and then switch over to them latter.

Telecom is having a hard time trying to get the number and it looks like I may lose it all together.

That means unless I can somehow obtain my old number and redirect it to my new number all my advertising will be worthless and also I will have to reprint all my signs and stationery.

Let alone the cost of contacting all my previous customers.

Thanks NZNET

Chrisbaby you are not the only one with many issues about nznet if you wanted to take it to National TV (Target, Fairgo) I would be one of your supporters like many others would be.

Hey Guys - you may have heard, but NZnet has gone into liquidation - about time I hear you say..

http://www.business.govt.nz/companies/app/ui/pages/companies/683249

Be interesting to see if there is any repercussions for the directors past and present over the last 12 months who continued to run the company and continued to engage suppliers while insolvent – Those directors as per the companies records – Andrew Stephens and Rowan Johnston  ( a financial investment advisor of all things )
