Which IPv6 DNS are you using? Tested from JHB and no redirect. Trying from a Cape Town based server quickly.

Edit: CPT based tests look fine too. Resolving to google.co.za in JHB.

Hmm, my internet been down for almost an hour now in Table View.

@websquadza Is this potentially related to the fibre break incident in Melkbos that's reported from yesterday on the status page?

Octotel have confirmed that there's an outage on the Blouberg node (which I believe you are connected to) - this is related to the larger metro break on their Melkbos network. Their CEO actually sent an update to ISPs this morning detailing the extent of the breaks and vandalism that occurred (thieves looking for copper got fibre instead and caused some significant damage). There is more than one break. Will provide more details as they come in.

@websquadza the statements are still not working on the website, any updates?

I've asked the team to look into this and get back to you on your ticket.

Also on the screen showing the list of invoices, the one invoice total is not the same as when you open the invoice (has a credit line item)

Will ask accounts to reach out and explain how the system calculates this.

What's the latest on IPV6 on Vuma trenched?

Native IPv6 support in the near term is looking about as promising as them working on their pricing. Same rhetoric every time we enquired- they’re working on it, testing, and will let us know when it’s ready (3 years of that now). We offer SIT tunnels though if you’re keen to get v6 running on trenched?

Saw this notice as well. This is quite a horrible time for such a large service affecting maintenance task. Likely quite a significant task and FTTB SLAs need to be maintained.

Partial repair. Speed test shows very poor performance.
