First TransACT, now Bigpond on the fritz

By soulman 5 June 2007 21

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?

RiotACT is a bit more robust (at least I’d like to think) than a notebook hard drive, and unless you’ve stolen our DNS entry its not running on your notebook. Although a notebook with wireless internet could be a damn site better than the current variety of issues which have been plaguing us.
