Re: [SLUG] Telstra Outages



We use pacific Internet.

We still had the outage as everyone uses Telstras Exchanges and servcies at
some point...

We do have a dialup modem too so we can still get email etc as pacific
Internet kindly have a backup service so you can dial into them to download
email.
