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

19408 Someone from Somewhere else thinks vodafone is Vodafone is a USELESS Internet "service" provider at 10 Sep 2011 04:58:48 PM
At the start of August 2011, Vodafone NZ screwed up their outgoing email server. About 80% of emails were simply being bounced without any attempt at being sent by their server with an error message because it thought they were spam. After a week and a half someone finally deigned to "fix" the problem. Apparently the fools had set the spam filter too high and the server was simply rejecting messages.

The following week international access to websites was broken, with website requests were taking three minutes or more to be acknowledged and start loading. Yet another week and a half before anyone at Vodafone bothered to look into it and fix it.

Then the outgoing email server screwed up again and bounced most emails as spam. After another week of "looking into it" this problem has SUPPOSEDLY now been "fixed" ... but instead of bouncing emails with an error message, the outgoing emails are now simply being deleted and never arrive at their recipient!

You try to post messages on their forum letting them know there are problems, and your messages are either deleted, hidden or you're told this isn't the right place ... and even worse, my account with the forum has been completely blocked!!

They don't have any ability whatsoever to actually run an ISP and have absolutely no idea what "customer service" is.

Vodafone is the BIGGEST joke of an Internet provider in New Zealand!!
