Support supplies a mobile number, --> msg bank

It's a little discouraging seeing as I only just joined up with them.
I'm getting a little buyer's remorse.

Does this happen often with these guys?

On their site it says there was a power outage in sydney where their servers are located. Hoping this was a one off.

I'm getting REALLY dodgy connections of late. I have no connection about as often as I do have a connection and when I do it's really slow.

I know it says they have a damaged switch at the server site but there is no listed outages at the moment. I was kinda hoping to rely on this ISP for a constant stream of data, what with it being unlimited. Consistency in the speed I'm not too worried about, actually maintaining a connection though...

We identified the problem and it should now be resolved. It was due to a numbr of things

(a) our remote hands incorrectly reconnected ethernet leads to a piece of equipment by accident
(b) we had a wierd udp problem appear. On advice of the hardware supplier, we performed a cold reboot of all the equipment late yesterday

The later appears to have solved the problem with the upd and the remote hands correctly connected the equipment once it was identified. If it hasnt please contact the service desk as you may have another problem

quite annoying, some websites very slow unable to play on most game servers..
wont connect with a ping of 16680 when it does get a response.

Think its a melbourne problem, uncertain where it lies. Tracerts seem ok although they do take a while with pauses between hops. but ms seems ok. which is strange..

Trace complete.

would of thought it would be resolved by now.
I think sydney servers seem to be ok

so is it the return path maybe..?

sent an SMS to AH support, got a call back, spent a while on the phone with Tech. sorted a few problems out. my router doing something and a change on their end caused some dramas. unsure of exact details and lingo. Can reach gameservers now so happy days again
