Currently on hold with bigpond support.. For the last half hour I couldn't get into anything but the bigpond homepage.. Now I seem to be able to access other things but not facebook.  I can't even access it on my iphone. Anyone else having similar problems?

I'm with iinet, and can't get into anything but EB. But even that's hit & miss.

So no FB, Pinterest, Hotmail or anything.

It's crazy how much I miss FB when I wanna get on, but can't blush.gif

ETA, I can't get into FB via my phone either, I'm with Virgin on my phone.

I was in the middle of uploading photos to the online op-shop that my Mother in Law and I run on Facebook and after editing everything and putting pricings in I went to press post and won't load etc - I hope when it's up and running again all the info is still there!

For about 30 mins I couldn't even get google, I couldn't get that modem error page and my modem had all its lights on mad.gif

Until I managed to find a made from paper phone book the only contact number I could find for telstra was the one on my phone bill and that was engaged for 20 minutes straight.

Five minutes ago the ONLY site I could access was EB, now I'm getting  DH's facebook (I don't have one) as well but nothing else.
We're with Bigpond, and this is the WEIRDEST Internet glitch I've experienced! Usually when it glitches out on us I get everything but EB.

#22 ~benita~

Posted 23 February 2012 - 01:31 PM

Just EB here as well.  I thought there was something wrong with my computer.

National Telstra (and it's wholesalers) outage. Internationally hosted websites are inaccessible.

Optus and it's piggybackers should be working fine as they have their own internet backbone.

Hopefully it's fixed soon!!

Same here.

So it seems to be most networks?

How weird. I'm with Dodo and I can get into most sites but a few (including Hotmail) aren't working. I've had this happen a few times recently, where one of the only sites I could get into for a while was EB
