On Monday morning, TransACT users experienced widespread network outages. Now it’s Tuesday night and users of Bigpond seem to be having the same problem. From 8pm onwards in Conder, Bigpond ADSL and nextG mobile internet was non existent.
Based on Bigpond website and call to tech support (with a 40min wait), here’s the low down:
– Several scheduled outages throughout Qld, NSW and Vic.
– Tech support claims no outages scheduled or occurring in ACT today, although Bigpond website states outage scheduled for Erindale.
– Bigpond servers are blocking international websits for some reason. Technicians investigating.
– Current problems affecting some users include the usage meter, connections and timeouts and email.
Anyone heard anything? TransACT and Bigpond having disruptions within two days, coincidence?
