Telstra Mobile Phone Outage 17th March, 2016
Eight million of @Telstra customers were effected by the #Telstraoutage on Thursday 17th March, 2016 across Australia. An early estimate was most mobile customers services eg. Text, calls, data etc. were impacted due to the outage. It first started as an international roaming service problem but quickly grew to a major mobile issue. When customers were disconnected and reconnected causing extreme congestion on the network. Customers services weren't restored for up to four hours apparently.
The #Telstra CEO Andrew Penn has offered customers a free data day on the 3rd April, 2016. Hopefully customers will take advantage of this opportunity to download as much as they want.
