Telstra, Australia’s biggest phone monopoly is down again today.
Some people cannot access voice services, data services or both due to this huge outage. Telstra has yet to confirm what is going on, but news outlets are lapping it up like it’s a ice cream on a hot day.
Gizmodo reporting with
Telstra’s Having Another Outage
and Telstra palming off customers and telling them that
We don’t know what’s caused this, so shut up and just enjoy our broken network.
Tweets from disgruntled customers are coming in left right and centre from Twitter and Facebook and from all of the CBD’s in Australia.
Same thing here. No coverage in Adelaide CBD. Outage page is out. Welcome to Monday.

Adding to the @Telstra outage commentary. 4G iPhone X in SOS mode in outer east, Melbourne. No calls and no data. I noticed it at 1030 am.

Myself, noticing my Pixel 2 XL (#notsponsored) not having the “4G” badge on the signal indicator, I thought something was wrong, nothing was loading.
Telstra has issued a public response to the outages on Twitter , advising all customers to go to their outages page, which people have also been having issues accessing.

Even the Queensland Police are advising people to use a landline phone instead of mobile as the outage can affect emergency calls with or without a SIM.
Outages across the Telstra 3G & 4G network may impact people trying to call Triple Zero (000) or the Police Assistance Line (131 444). Until resolved, if you need assistance use a phone with another carrier or a landline. Only call Triple Zero (000) if you have an emergency.
