North Island logs off the Matrix

Telecom fault paralyses communications in North Island
20.06.05 13.00pm UPDATE
Two separate cable faults have paralysed Telecom’s broadband internet and mobile networks in the North Island, overloading landlines for much of the country.

The outage, which occurred at 10.48am, also crashed the New Zealand Stock Exchange – the sixth time that technical problems have caused the closure of the stock market in the past nine months.

Telecom’s own call centres were being overwhelmed by calls.

There was no indication when the problem would be repaired, [Telecom’s spokeswoman] said.

So that’s why is off-line, and thus NZPundit and KiwiBlog also! Mondayitis to the extreme.
