iiNet taking the day off

The usually excellent iiNet is taking a day off from ACT service today:

Estimated Time of Commencement:
2012-10-04 09:30:50 WST

Description:
Broadband:
Broadband customers in the ACT may be disconnected and unable to reconnect to the Internet. Affected customers will be unable to access web sites and check email. Please be aware Netphone customers may be unable to place or receive calls.

Technical Summary:
Engineers are working on restoring services as soon as possible.

Resolution:

Update 10:12AM WST : Engineers are currently on-site.

Estimated Time of Restoration:

11pm can’t come soon enough here in the bunker where we’re chewing up mobile data to keep this show on the road.

What’s Your opinion?

Today I phoned Iinet-owned Grapevine’ support line again. This time they returned my call but gave me a dose of pre-recorded advertising before they would let me speak to a support person.

They said that their failure to call me back on Sunday was due to a failure of their automated system, and that recent problems affecting 19,000 customers seem to have been resolved. My internet connection now seems to be working OK.

Yesterday I was having problems downloading my Iinet-owned Grapevine email.
So I tried the webmail service – also not working.
I tried to report the problems using the web form – also not working.
So I phoned up and got a recorded message that if I left my phone number they would call me back in 35 minutes.
That was 24 hours ago. I’m still waiting.

We were with iiNet back in the old dial up days. I can remember a number of 3-6hr periods where the net would “down” but I suspect that was more to do with the older technology.

First outage i’ve had with iinet ever, been with them a couple of years.

I’m with Bigpond and they’re never down.

Well my Bigpond went down yesterday. I’m about to ditch them and their expensive plans. I can’t believe they are going to require customers moving to NBN to maintain their copper line (and pay for it!) for another two years…

6yrs – down for maybe an hour total over that whole time. You pay but you do get quality with Bigpond.

Thankfully, iiNet came back at around 1pm (in Fyshwick at least).

Yes, it has been my professional experience that Telstra is reliable, efficient, knowledgeable, trustworthy and honest.
Especially Telstra Business Services. If they say they can do something, you can be absolutely sure that a subject matter expert will be on the case in the blink of an eye, backed by the best technical design and the best project management, will have all the right tools, experience, knowledge and skills to complete the job with 100% success well within the alloted timeframe.

I’m not with iiNet, but I just had a 20 minute outage, which is quite unusual.

Must be that pesky NBN they’re laying in Palmerston today causing all this.
