Tiscali Fails Again!!

  muddypaws 22:23 15 Mar 2007

Tiscali went down at about 4pm today and I have just managed to re-connect.
My son managed to contact them and they said it
was a 'Network Outage'!! He managed to get back on at 8pm.

You say it fails again. When was the last time it failed. I'm with Tiscali and although I'm not too keen on them I've only had one outage and that was over a year ago.

I have the same problem, it happened tonight and a week ago. I got in touch with Tiscali and they asked me to phone their support, I told them I was not prepared to talk to them on the phone, paying for the privilege of their mistakes. I am still waiting for a response.

I have never had an outage with Tiscali.

Mine was off tonight but thats the first time in well over a year for me.

I've had a few outages on Tiscali in the 6 years I've been with them, the longest, about a year ago, was for about a day or so, but I think it was something to do with our local exchange. The other outages have been for no more than an hour or two (that I've noticed). I've never had to contact their helpline, not that I would want to, now that it's moved to India (my pet hate). I'm quite happy with the 99 per cent service I'm getting. Service outages will happen with all ISPs, it's inevitable.

I've been with them for about five years now,and they are DEFINATELY getting worse.We have problems connecting to Tiscali Broadband at least once or twice a week.They are normally short lived probs but up to a couple of years ago,connection problems were very rare.If it wasnt for the hassle of changing email addresses,I would seriously consider another isp.
Those of you who have had virtually no problems with Tiscali,have been very lucky.
Lets hope they improve soon.

I suppose it was frustration that caused me to use that phrase! I like, desi3026, have fairly frequent blips lasting perhaps an hour, but those , in fairness, could be an exchange fault. I have been with them for four years and never used to have any problems.
Stuartli. Thanks for the link, but thay don't mention any exchange near me in Kent, unless those two are some sort of national distribution areas.
Must learn to be more tolerant I suppose.

All is forgiven. I have had a 'Happy Birthday' mail from them.!! Got that right!

I have never had an outage on dial up, for some 5 years. The customer service is poor but their reliability once you are within their "system" is very good. David
