Since 8:50pm there has been a fault with our wireless site at Aberfeldy affecting a number of customers in that area, and the lower Whangaehu Valley. At this stage it is unlikely that service will be restored until mid-morning tomorrow.

Some Inspire Wireless customers in the Manawatu area may find they lost internet access around 10:00am due to what seems to be a power fault with our equipment. Engineers are on their way to fix it.
A link to one of our upstream providers is proving unstable, and we're seeing intermittent loss of connectivity to some international sites. Engineers are working on the problem now.

10:53am : We have identified a fiber cut along State Highway 3 halfway between Bulls and Whanganui as the root cause of the problem and we have contacted the relevant providers. We hope to post an updated estimated time of resolution shortly.
12:14pm : We have an estimated resolution time of 6pm tonight.
2.27pm : Unfortunately the ETR has been withdrawn. Due to the state of the ground and fibre damage, we're now uncertain how long it will take to resolve. We will keep updating as we have updates and again apologise for the inconvenience but ensure we are doing everything we can to get this back up and running.
7:55pm : All Whanganui services are now restored. Both our primary and backup link to Whanganui are now up and running. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
Due to various lightning strikes and power issues we have various wireless towers down around the Manawatu at the moment.
Anything we cannot resolve remotely will need to be visited in daylight hours later on today.
