iiNet – Opticomm service disruption

Noticed today that my smokeping metrics for my next hop out of my iiNet service took a turn for the worst. Prior to midnight started to get packet loss.

iiNet knew nothing of it, and turns out Opticomm was having backhaul issues (2nd time since Saturday) and believed to be related.

Funny enough things came good late tonight and I imagine that’s because Opticomm resolved condition.

Ironically enough and annoying thing is that while this occured the Opticomm status page for my postcode had no faults reported. That really ticks me off. Considering iiNet wasn’t telling customers anything about it.
