Home Industry Telecoms & NBN As Telstra committed $50 million to network fix, mini outage occurred

Yesterday, as Telstra was committing $50 million to harden its network, Aussieoutages.com and Telstra users were reporting issues with landline and mobile services.

Although this latest outage appears to have been microscopic compared with the two big recent Telstra outages that took millions down across the nation, the were still complaints on Twitter.

People spoke of problems with wired Internet services, landline phones and mobile phones from various parts of Australia.

A Telstra spokesperson spoke of ADSL issues in Queensland but no problems on the mobile network, and explained the problem was fixed within 30 minutes.

More below, please read on. 

Reportedly, some 3G and 4G users in Sydney were affected, but Telstra said the issue was unrelated to the previous outages, although you would expect Telstra to tell that to its shareholders and customers.

Although users were still reporting problems after the various issues were reportedly solved, Telstra believes it is all now fixed.
