Telstra

You know you’re hooked on the net when… yesterday at 2:06PM Telstra’s ADSL network went down. It’s amazing how consistent Telstra’s stuff ups are becoming – this about the fourth time in as many weeks the network has suffered a serious outage. The system didn’t come back online here at work until after 9:30PM – so most of the afternoon was wiped out here. Luckily I had meetings in the afternoon, so no major problems there. The network was still down at home, however, until after 11:45PM. I promised myself that I wouldn’t use the Telstra network for my home ADSL connection, but somehow I managed to convince myself it wouldn’t be an issue (I use Pacific Internet but they are reliant on Telstra’s systems for their non-premium services). D’oh! Oh well – at least we’re back online here today. Fingers crossed it stays that way for a while…
