Social Media Uproar As Phones Across The Country Fail Again
These days it seems like another day, another Telstra outage.
That certainly seems to be the case, especially if you’ve got a plan with a Telco giant.
Well, it seems the third Telstra outage in just THREE months has hit, almost a week after the last one hit and left a large portion of the country unable to communicate.
A lot of tweets coming through from @Telstra customers saying they can't make calls either. Hmm..— Tom Minear (@tminear) 22 March 2016
Obviously, social media is rife with tweets and posts making fun of the Telco and complaining about the service - or lack thereof.
A Telstra spokesman confirmed that customers were reporting difficulty making voice calls on fixed and mobile networks, according to a report on news.com.au.
@ElizaMayV >> Mainly affecting VIC and TAS with some impact elsewhere. We're investigating as a priority.— Telstra (@Telstra) 22 March 2016
The outage appears to be affecting people in Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Sydney, Adelaide and Hobart. As complaints started to roll in, Telstra’s official Twitter account advised one person to try turning their mobile phone on and off again.
No word yet on when the services will be back up and running - but Telstra have assured their customers, they are “looking into it as a priority.”
Seriously @Telstra what is going on!! I have businesses to run and my old morse code system isn't working either!😜👊🏻— Tim Robards Official (@MrTimRobards) 22 March 2016
@Telstra why do I pay twice as much for your service when you can't go a week without disruptions. Cancelling my contract ASAP.— Brett Whibley (@BrettWhib) 22 March 2016
