    Default hows everyones internet holding up, slowdowns ?

    With so many locked indoors, and on the internet , I suspect the Internet getting overloaded

    My internet has been up & down all morning speedwise. Sometimes OK, sometimes crawling
    It makes my remote work from home a frustrating experience, with my remote connection dropping often

    Apparently Vodafone has had an outage, Spark hasn't but data is up.
    Mines OK but only been here and on news sites. My brother is on is game as usual and it's going ok, no lag or anything.

    Perfectly fine here, and SWMBO is hammering it with her work. Sure would hear about it if it were playing up

    Much better than it is at Christmas or Easter as all the tourists/holiday makers are not here. Spark rural 4G and no noticeable slow down (yet)

    Ive a client with rural wireless internet : Vodafone
    Works oerfectly, except now cant access 365 email at all ,not via Outlook or webmail. cant even ping the 365 servers (can ping from my place)
    So no email, zero chance of of getting through to someone at Voda helpdesk who will be of any help
    Not good for a business relying on email

    I saw on the Voda forum other some other are having the same issue with Voda wireless broadband, cant access 365 & cant access some
    NZ bank websites via the voda wireless internet

    Interesting - got a client whose email via 365 at her work was working fine, but now while at home says invalid Password. Dont know who her ISP is though.

    Only 1 website giving problems off and on , no second guess which one

    My website and Trademe were slow the other night.
    Chorus admitted there were some network issues.
    They are tweaking the network to allow for the huge increase in people working and playing at home

    The 365 & Office.com is an issue with Voda Rural Wireless (RBI) . I looked on the Voda community page & others on RBI have the same issue
    Works fine except 365 & a few other random websites (eg on of the banks sites)
    Others (geekzone) are having some random issues with VPN's via vodafone (only)
    Just FYI :-)

    My clients Rural wireless internet is now down completely. Unfortunately, I had to tell him that ringing Vodafone would be a complete waste of time, he gave up after 2 hours on hold.
    They can get email via their phones ,but had issues opening attachments on the phones. They will need to cope the best they can.
