Dear visitor,

Since its inception Vodafail.com has made a significant contribution towards raising awareness of the problems and issues faced by Vodafone customers.

Vodafone Australia customers have had the opportunity to voice their concerns, their fears and their troubles from every corner of Australia and beyond our borders. You have gathered the courage to stand up for your rights as consumers and to make your voice heard.

Each and every person who shared their story should have a sense of pride in this achievement and the changes that have occurred since the start of Vodafail.com.

More recently, traffic to Vodafail.com has declined significantly. Having achieved the goal of raising awareness and promoting concrete action in early 2011, we have now reached the point of closing Vodafail to new complaints. The site will remain online for as long as possible as a reminder and an example of what is possible when we share our experiences.

It has been a privilege to run this initiative and I'm am forever grateful for the help and support I've received. In particular I would like to thank Melissa, David and Travis for their continued efforts over the past 15 months. I'm also thankful and humbled by the support of ACCAN, Choice magazine and a wide range of media outlets, blogs and websites.

You can still browse existing stories and find out how to file a complaint if you are experiencing problems.

Until next time,

Adam Brimo

16712 Someone from Somewhere else thinks vodafone is Yep, Vodafone NZ's ISP "sux". at 7 Apr 2011 04:59:41 PM
I help out many people with their Mac computers, many of whom are elderly / retired so can't afford to keep upgrading computers that are perfectly usable for their needs. A couple of years ago Vodafone's authentication servers had a problem which means Mac OS 9 users cannot even log-on via dial-up. This is a problem that had occurred a few time before and with a few phone calls to the then-ihug Help Desk the problem would eventually be fixed ... no such luck now. After numerous calls to Vodafone, being told there was no problem, then being told there was a problem and it was being "looked into", then it was to be fixed "tomorrow / later today" (for about six phone calls over many days), but eventually I was told that they were not going to fix the problem at all. Experiments with other users and other ISPs have shown that Vodafone appears to be the only ISP that disallows Mac OS 9 users to log-on! Vodafone NZ simly have no interest in and no ability to run an Internet Service Provider.
