Has anyone ever seen a fault listed on this.


Tonight my iTalk number doesnt work, so i check network status, and no known problems


so ring the help desk and there is problems for users in my local exchanges...


its not the first time ive seen no network faults but there has been one, but I have never seen it updated online.


its a secondary number so no big deal, but would be nice to see it updated when there is a fault.

No ISPs seem to keep their Network Status' updated. It's not an isolated issue.

If they do anything to tell people about outages, people assume that its causing the client side problem they are having and then every time that same thing happens again, its the ISPs fault.

Even if the error on a phone even says the problem is "receiving email for some users" then a tards problem with IE crashing when loading hotmail becomes the ISPs fault from then on.

It makes future customers have a positive impression of the company.

richms: It makes future customers have a positive impression of the company.

And makes existing customers have a negative impression...

Who cares about existing customers?

They obviously choose to stay for reasons other than customer service.

Hi,

Our Network Status page automatically updates during a P1 or P2 Network fault.  This usually means a complete service failure impacting a significant number of customers.

During a fault situation you can enter your mobile number on the Network Status page and it SMS'es you once it has been resolved.

This new process has been in place for a couple of months.

Unfortunately, we do not yet have any automation between ourselves and Telecom/Vodafone at this stage to automatically populate Status Messages for faults localised to a specific Exchange.

We will be implementing an interim solution within the next month to further improve this process, which should capture faults like the one mentioned in this thread.

Adrian
