What Causes Internet Outage in NZ?

One of the leading causes is network congestion, which means too many people are accessing the same network simultaneously. This happens when your broadband provider limits the bandwidth distribution in your location.

Another cause could be bad weather. Natural disasters such as cyclones and earthquakes can affect network lines causing anything from a minor disruption to a significant outage.

What to Do if You Experience Connection Issues

One of the best ways to resolve internet connection problems is to troubleshoot the router. It resets your data, and eliminates network congestion, internet speed fluctuations, and other issues.

Unplug the router and wait for a minute or two before replugging. If you still experience slow internet after doing this, you can manually reset your router by pressing the small button at the back for 30 seconds to 1 minute.

You can use our Internet Speed Test to analyze your internet performance.
