Australia's biggest ISP/telephone company, TELSTRA, is completely down right now
Australia's biggest ISP, Telstra, with their satellite, cable, ADSL, and next-g (3G/4G, etc) are all COMPLETELY DOWN right now.

With our Foreign Minister and ex-PM, Kevin Rudd resigning... with a huge political shit storm breaking out - is this where Australia begins its problems?

The biggest ISP is down right now - this is like AT&T's entire business just stopping, right now in the US.

THIS IS HUGE PEOPLE.

Australian-based sites feel extremely slow, and even people working within Telstra are reporting that they have no Internet access.

Telstra's Status Page lists it as all OK - but was last updated at 9AM, 5 hours ago:

[link to servicestatus.telstra.com]

[link to www.itwire.com]

"I was first alerted to the issue around 20 minutes ago when a friend called to ask why his "Google" was down. I tried "Teamviewering" in to his computer, only to discover that I couldn't get a connection, with someone else at my friend's location telling me their Telstra phone also couldn't connect to the Internet.

So, I tried one smartphone with a Tesltra SIM, and my Telstra SIM-powered iPad, only to discover that they wouldn't go online either - and I'm here in Canberra at the moment, hundreds of kilometres away from my friends in Sydney.

Then, another friend called, asking why their Telstra ADSL and wireless modems weren't allowing them to connect. I've been trying to connect to Bigpond.com and Telstra.com.au - all to no avail, so I can't check whether or not Telstra has any status udpates, while also realising this is probably one heck of a big outage.

In addition, two Telstra media spokespersons that I contact from time to time aren't answering their phones, which often means there's some kind of crisis going on at Telstra and that they don't have time - or don't want - to talk to the media.

Unlike the rather pathetic political fight engulfing Australia's left-of-centre Labor Party, one can only hope that Telstra and BigPond are back up well before next Monday.

We'll have more information as soon as we get it!"

I bet they are physically severing the international cables and installing physical firewalls between them.
So they can physically isolate separate countries international internet access to control the flow of information if they want to.

Still experiencing issues, Telstra's Facebook page updated:

"All – Telstra lost connectivity with the international data network around 1:40pm this afternoon, which resulted in an overload on domestic sites, causing issues with internet access.

The vast majority of customers are back online, but our engineers continue to monitor the network.

Call volumes are high to our customer service channels because of this outage and we appreciate your patience.

We'll keep you updated as soon as we can."

Not whinging that I haven't received a pin yet... but this is huge news. Australia's BIGGEST telecommunications and Internet provider had a huge outage today and are still having on-going problems.

This is absolutely huge. Right at the time of when things are meant to change (Feb 22/23 - new moon, what not) and at the exact time of the Gillard/Rudd face-off.

This is the domino falling, people. Guarantee they've just put hardware-based firewalls in place, or a filter, without us knowing.

Answer me this: people whinge about the firewall, but if it was installed, how would you even know?
