Figtree ADSL down since around 11am,
My Mobile 3G down since around 11:30am (which is also my backup internet for tethering)

Coniston (my dads service)
Phone and ADSL both down

An update would be nice, and before you tell me to go to the linked page, it has no update or any real info..

We are glad to see services are coming online. However, we are yet to get the restoration confirmed from our wholesale supplier.

It’s good to hear the service is now working. Our supplier also confirmed the outage has been restored.

I have dropped PPPoE 3 times today and playing international server games has been shocking since last week.
What the hell happened to exetel? They used to be the people to see when you wanted a big limit and a non oversold stable connection.

If this doesn't start getting better i'm going to have to transfer
