Re: Service Drop Out in Deer Park, Victoria?

I've also been having a few drop outs over the xmas period. All seems fine now, but have had to reboot the modem a few times over the last 5 or so days.

Brickbats & Bouquets

After all the brickbats I've given Exetel over the last few years, its time they got a bouquet. My service has been nice and stable and reasonably quick (we can never be happy with the speed) for the last 6 months. Well done!
cheers,

Re: Some sites extremely slow

No, back to normal now - ie news.com.au is timing out.
Thought I posted this the other day, but it seems to have disappeared.

Re: Some sites extremely slow

One post on Whirlpool and it seems to be working properly.
The suggestion from wp was to turn off the intrusion detection on the billion - did that, and news.com.au came up straight away.
Will continue monitoring for a few days and see if it continues to stay up.

Re: Some sites extremely slow

And again tonight. I believe that I've been pretty patient up till now, and I really do appreciate you getting the banking site and hotmail working, but its a little difficult to believe that you can't get news.com.au up and running.
