Can anyone here try going to this address:


Let me know if you can get there.
I couldn't dial up using my paradise, and I can't check my paradise email's - hopefully its happening for everyone (not just me) and I hope it works soon.

Paradise cable was down too, My mate rang & told me.
He then rang paradise & he was greeted by a pre-recorded message saying they were working on the problem.

All is ok again :)

cheers Steve

Well at least the pre-recorded message acknowledged the problem. When Xtra/Jetstream conked out yesterday, the "help" line, as usual, said there were "no knowern problems". That's the trouble, they don't know until the first user tells them - and I often seem to be the first.

What amused me is that before you press the button for the "status message", there's now a new preamble; it goes: "Did you know you can get status reports on the Xtra website. You don't need to phone us...."

Think, Telecom. What is wrong with this statement?

I've been experiecing consistant problems with paradise last couple of weeks, e-mails slow to arrive, and outages.

everyone I know is having same problems, not sure whats going on, but
their reliabilty has gone out the window lately.

I use Paradise for internet - Clear for Email. Find no problems with either of them.
