muppet: Oh dear.
Their routes have now totally gone (I was still learning one from a domestic service)

They're "probably" just moving providers. It's just strange they didn't get their new provider to start advertising their ranges before their old one stopped.


Yeah, they just changed providers earlier today, and have now changed yet again. Three providers in three days, wonder who tomorrows provider will be :) 


I've been watching their netblock announcement today. I never saw it change.

Yes, a shame their Skytower environment is still off the air. And the customers who're on Wireless behind it.

what is wrong with this company why are they screwing us around.
ive had 2 days without any phone and internet   finally just got back on few mins ago.

femtaku: Im going to visit my boyfriend who lives just down the road from the nznet office so im going to pop im and pay them a visit in an hour or so. Will let you all know how it goes :)



Just got back from seeing them.
They assured me they arent going bankrupt/out of business. And that they are trying to have it all back by tomorrow morning (tonight at the earliest).

And you really believe them after all this ?

Remember, it is a long weekend, and when you visit them again on tuesday you will find an empty office.
The NZNet club appears to be a scam, and once more I would say, quickly cancel your direct debit as I did, or you pay their bills to the people who they own money to and never see your dollars back.

Today and tomorrow is where they take the dosh out of your account for the next month where you will have  no access.

Good luck, I jump ship and do not believe for a moment that tomorrow they will be up and running again.

OK, mine go off on the 20th.

Anyway, with the long weekend ahead and the trouble banks make accepting cancellations of direct debits, better be quick to withdraw from this scam.
