Can't get on the web at home, can't make a call out at home as "account is suspended', support number is overloaded?
Anyone  else getting these issues or able to shed any light?

Thanks to my ISP will be a quiet morning. How do you 'accidently' suspend all your customers' accounts #xnet?

"Maybe they all got copyright notices..... "

Or maybe just practising :)

Message up on their phone now, due to an "internal issue" some accounts were accidently suspended and we are working through resolving the issue.

I think a few people in their internal team are going to having an uncomfortable and long day

Internet and VFX were done by 8.00am, Most Toll customers should all complete the remaining should be within the next 30 to 60 minutes,

Hey, my wife couldn't check facebook this morning, it was a disaster...


Am pleased is being resolved quickly, but I would appreciate if WXC could be a bit more transparent about how widespread this outage was, reading the webpage it suggests it was only a dozen or so, the could also have updated the website a lot quicker, 9:30am before an update was posted for an outage that happened at 3:00am is not acceptable, most people now have multiple channels for web access so updating the web page quickly would help

Understand , I don't think the issue became apparent until around 7.30 and someone forgot to get the info up to the Website in a timely manner, normally I chase this up but unfortunately I was not in the office but that is no excuse and yes not acceptable, it is my responsibility for it not being there and I apolagise for that.

I'd be a new customer!  :)

That is totally the best attitude I love to see.  Things break, I've done it many times. 

I hate pr spin about dedication and blar blar...  I love it when a tech is just honest and says 'hey, sorry guys..."

I agree with this, services do break all the time and if it is to often for my liking then I simply take my business elsewhere. Appreciate the honest response  does more for pr than spin..

Glad VFX was sorted so quickly, looks like we didn't notice any impact at the office - if it'd run much past 8am I'm sure there'd have been much wailing and gnashing of teeth. Big ups for admitting the muckup and being straight up on the whole thing.
