I thought is was my puter. Did the same to me last night and gave up. How can they not cope with such a small population?

Is a bit worrying isn't it, when they get unbundled and the competition steps in it should be better hopefully

Thumbs up Mutual entertainment

I must say I was jolly well annoyed with Telecom……..what an amateurish outfit!

And yet the message has not changed on their home page about no problems on the Telecom network.

There was crap on TV so nothing much to do and I was convinced the lights were going to blow as there were power spikes………….oh dear………….what is a man and woman to do?

We entertained each other, at least that was jolly nice!

Telecom broadband was still connected and working, it was their DNS servers that fell over. It used to happen with BT back in the UK as well.

You can get around the problem by specifying a different dns server - although frankly I just turned off the computer and read a good book instead.
