Work is under way to remove Vocus New Zealand's AS9790 from Auckland Peering Exchange.
This does not reflect a change in Vocus NZ's open peering policy and does not involve other Vocus AS's. In particular, there is no change to AS4826.

I have a couple of questions about some regular traffic spikes we're seeing to parts of our infrastructure from various Microsoft owned prefixes around the world - if there's anyone from Microsoft on here that might be able to help me chase it up, please get in touch directly so I can understand if this is by design and has a purpose or is something one of us has to fix.

Prolonged periods of high packet loss. Started all of a sudden about a month ago.
Was fine until then. Getting 14 Mbps with no jitter or packet loss.
Now only getting 0.3 to 0.8 Mbps with lots of jitter and 12.5% packet loss.
Can be bad for hours and then all of a sudden good for a few hours but then bad again.
OK for email but too slow for browsing.
Flip, my ISP, say they can't help. They advise that I go to fibre but I don't need it and I can't afford it. I might have to go through Telecommunications Dispute Resolution (TDR).
Before I do I was wondering if anyone here might be able to explain what's going on. Like is Flip throttling my ADSL service to get me to go over to fibre? Or does Vocus need to upgrade its network to cope with all the new fibre users without marginalizing copper users?
Any comments or advice would be much appreciated.
