Switching Mobile Plans

The website shows a suite of new mobile plans, but within the Member Facilities, you can't select to change to them...only options are the former plans.

When will the new mobile plans be made available to switch to in Member Services ?

Re: DNS Fails intermittently

Can you please actually revert back one day on the weekend to just using that server, and see if 58.96.1.28 is still faulty. I reverted back to solely 58.96.1.28, I have had issues....I took a complete packettrace .... happy to share but I'm not sure how to get it to you .... it's 22MB (unless I fi...

Re: DNS Fails intermittently

Has anyone experiencing this problem (I haven't myself) detected any difference in the packets returned from 58.96.1.28 and 220.233.0.4 for a problem site either as interpreted by dig or from a Wireshark binary capture? 220.233.0.3 is a BIND secondary. I have (or did) .... unfortunately my wireshar...

Re: DNS Fails intermittently

However, correct me if I'm wrong, but that doesn't explain why the behaviour of 58.96.1.28 differs from that of 220.233.0.3: Well, yes and no... an entry like www.lego.com with a string of CNAMEs and a bunch of nameservers involved ... could be resolved by a DNS server a myriad of different ways......

Re: DNS Fails intermittently

Can you please duplicate the issue? The SERVFAILs on www.lego.com against 58.96.1.28 ? Yes. Just about every 15 seconds without fail. The browser coming up with "Server Not Found" ? No. that is not something I can reliably reproduce. So far every attempt to open a website has succeeded. All I can p...

Re: DNS Fails intermittently

We have done some changes which should fix the issue. That explains why my PPPoA spontaneously restarted this morning ??? Retested ... seems "better" but no cigar .... it's not something I can really make happen at will. That said, I did start some routine DNS testing and I can now reliably reprodu...

Re: DNS Fails intermittently

I've been experiencing this as well for probably over month now .... it's extremely frustrating. I'll share my thoughts. symptoms have been 1) Server Not Found errors in the browser 2) Webpages only partially loading. eg the CSS doesn't load and pages don't render properly 3) Reloads and refreshes d...

Re: Alternative plans to OCV200?

Mort, don't forget those listed ADSL prices DON'T include the $20/mth line rental you MUST also pay. With the $40 plan exchange, there is no point switching to the nearest equivalent OF-100. I too was just going to go month-to-month on OCV200 until a better deal comes along ..... or until Exetel for...

Re: Smartphones and email

Does that mean to suggest to sign up to gmail (even if I don't want gmail), and just use it to configure gmail's authenticated SMTP server which will allow me to send my non-exemail & non-gmail emails out through gmail's gateway.

Whether that's what you meant or not ...... I'll give it a go.

I have an Exetel ADSL service at home as well as an Exetel Mobile service. I have an Android 2.2 phone I want to use email seamlessly from both home and out-n-about. Accessing email is not a problem, but sending is..... At home I'm on the WiFi and have to use the exetel SMTP server, Out-n-about on O...

Re: Three Months Free ADSL

However, as an ISP and to ensure our customers (new and existing) are happy and get the best service at the lowest possible cost we have to continuously revamp our plans and make them better where possible. Yes the initial referral program does say that the offer is valid till 30th August 2011 - bu...

Who's got the added option on their plan that basically includes all calls to National land-line and Optus mobiles ? Read-on... I used to run all my calls over VOIP to keep call costs down. 6 months ago I switched to a plan that, as a bonus, gave me the included National & calls to Optus mobiles, wh...

Re: Three Months Free ADSL

As an existing customer, I received an email on 6th July from Exetel about a special member-only referral program, titled "$30 for YOU, and up to 7 months FREE for your friend". It states (and I quote)... Until midnight on August 30th 2011, if a friend or relative applies to, and is successful in ge...
